ND senators react to day 2 of impeachment trial

By  | 

WASHINGTON, D.C., - Day two of opening arguments is underway in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, and House managers spent much of the day talking about what constitutes abuse of power.

The specific argument is that the president abused his power by pressuring Ukraine to investigate his political rivals and how that fits the constitutional grounds for impeachment.

The president's legal team has called the impeachment case invalid because it doesn't name an actual crime.

Thursday, Democrats were trying to debunk that using past statements from the president's own attorneys and allies.

Republicans say they're not hearing anything new, and Democrats are slamming them for voting against bringing in new documents and witnesses.

Senators John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer both responded to the ongoing senate trial.

"I think we're all committed to doing the best job that we can. Everybody brings their own perspective, obviously, but we're committed to a full and fair process; and I think we're showing that," Hoeven said.

"Adam Schiff keeps repeating the same facts over and over again, as though if he says them more times, there are more facts. And there aren't. There are just very few facts; a very weak case that he's presenting. But, he presents them over and over evidentially in an attempt to make them louder," said Cramer.
