For less than two hours, Trump's legal team summarized its case against the abuse of power and obstruction of Congress articles of impeachment. They also argued that the articles fail constitutionally, and that Trump did not delay aid to Ukraine in an attempt to pressure the country into investigating the president's rivals. Senators will have 16 hours for written questions that will be read by the chief justice. By late in the week, they are expected to hold a vote on whether or not to hear from any witnesses, according to the Associated Press.
