U.S. Senate Begins Trump Impeachment Trial
The final phase of the trial of the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump has begun at the Senate, following impeachment articles forwarded by the House Democrats.
The House Democratic impeachment managers, led by Adam Schiff were at the Senate chamber on Thursday to formally read the articles of impeachment.
The impeachment process in the US follows a three-step procedure with the Senate being the last to try the accused as well as conclude on his or her fate.
The article stated that the president abused power and obstructed Congress.
But Donald Trump had denied any wrongdoing while stating that the House inquiry was a mere political witch-hunt.
