Lawyers wrote in a 110-page memorandum handed over (Monday) to Congress that this trial, which actually begins tomorrow (Tuesday), constitutes a "serious deviation from the constitution," saying that "the Senate should reject the indictment and immediately acquit the president," according to what the Press Agency reported. French.
In response to a question about the strategy that the team will take to ensure this quick acquittal, sources close to it refused to go into details.
One of these sources said: “We are trying to prove that these charges are clearly unfounded, which means that there is no need even to move forward. It can be rejected (the charges) from the beginning, "condemning the process" illegal from the beginning. " He added that «the president did not commit any bad act», considering that any witness heard during the investigation conducted by the House of Representatives did not confirm the direct accusations against Trump.
Trump is accused of having asked Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, the most likely Democratic candidate to compete in the November presidential election, and that he pressed Kiev on condition that it start this investigation to release vital military aid to it.
For this reason, the Democratic-dominated House of Representatives accused him in December of abusing power and obstructing the work of Congress, taking it not to cooperate with the parliamentary investigation with the aim of "isolating it."
But the Republicans, who have the majority in the Senate, support the president and thus guarantee him innocence.
