WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump's impeachment trial may not result in his removal from office, but it could help determine whether his Republicans retain control of the Senate in the November congressional elections.

From Ken Starr to Alan Dershowitz, the president’s lawyers spewed illogical arguments that contradicted their own well-known positions.

The Trump Team’s Legal Defense Was a Tour de Force of Hypocrisy

By Elie Mystal
Today 9:29 am

On Monday, the Republicans put on a full-throated defense of President Donald Trump in his impeachment trial in front of the United States Senate. It was a disjointed presentation. Unlike the case offered against Donald Trump by the seven Democratic House managers, the Republicans adopted no coherent narrative to explain why Trump did the things he’s admitted to doing, and couldn’t even stay on the same page in terms of whether he did them at all.

Senate Democrats have argued they need testimony from witnesses and additional documents that were not provided during the impeachment inquiry because of the Trump administration's failure to comply with congressional issued subpoenas.
