US President Donald Trump sends Senate first response to impeachment summons

@POTUS
US President Donald Trump's legal team has issued its first formal response to the impeachment charges against him, describing them as a dangerous attack on democracy.

In their brief document, they said the impeachment articles failed to allege any crime and were a brazen attempt to interfere with the 2020 presidential elections.

The response came as the Democrats filed their brief for the proceedings yesterday. Opening statements in the trial will begin next week.

Mr Trump is the third US president in history to face an impeachment trial. He is accused of abuse of power and obstructing the work of Congress.

Mr Trump has denied wrongdoing and branded the case against him as a hoax.

The House, controlled by opposition Democrats, impeached the president last month. The Senate, controlled by Mr Trump's Republican Party, will decide whether to convict and remove him from office.

Earlier, in their brief, House Democrats laid out their arguments on why Trump should be removed from office. They said the President had abandoned his oath to faithfully execute the laws and betrayed his public trust and called his conduct the worst nightmare of the country's founding fathers.
