(Worthy News) – President Trump’s lawyers wrapped up their impeachment defense on Tuesday by urging senators to “trust the American people” with elections and to acquit the president, but the trial’s end was still in doubt, with Republicans lacking the votes to stop Democrats from calling witnesses.
