Trump lawyers: President has done ‘absolutely nothing wrong’

Donald Trump’s legal team called for the US president to be “immediately acquitted” ahead of the first day of his impeachment trial on Tuesday.

White House lawyers said Mr Trump has done “absolutely nothing” wrong and urged the Senate to swiftly reject the “flimsy” charges and “flawed” case against him.

Mr Trump’s legal team was writing in its first full filing for the impeachment court on Monday.

The president’s lawyers wrote: “All of this is a dangerous perversion of the constitution that the Senate should swiftly and roundly condemn.

“The articles should be rejected and the president should be immediately acquitted.”
