President Trump’s laywers release first formal response ahead of Senate resolution

WASHINGTON D.C. (KUSI) – President Trump and his lawyers released his first formal response to the impeachment charges against him.

In a six-page letter, the president and his three lawyers outline that the “articles of impeachment submitted by House Democrats are a dangerous attack on the right of the American people to freely choose their president.”

His lawyers have spoken to media outlets lately on their involvement as they prepare for the Senate trial.

Meanwhile, the Senate has made a decision to move ahead with a resolution.

The resolution includes two phases: sorting out who key players are and how they will present their case to convict or remove the president, and whether or not to call witnesses and introduce more evidence of alleged illegal activity.

It’s expected to be made formal this Tuesday on Capitol Hill.
