Trump lawyer calls impeachment trial a ‘politically-motivated witch hunt’

Donald Trump’s defense attorney Michael van der Veen began his argument in the Senate on Friday by calling the impeachment article against Trump an “unjust and obviously unconstitutional act of political vengeance”. He added: “Like every other politically motivated witch hunt that the left has pursued for the past four years, this impeachment is completely divorced from the facts, evidence and interests of the American people.”
