President’s legal team issues statement on two impeachment articles endorsed by the House of Representatives.
President Donald Trump’s legal team issued a statement condemning the impeachment, which was announced to the president by the House of Representatives. Lawyers have called the allegations against Trump a “dangerous attack” on Americans and their suffrage.
In a six-page document, which was published on Saturday, Trump’s lawyers gave an official conclusion on the validity of two articles of impeachment – abuse of power and obstruction to Congress. These articles were approved by the House of Representatives at the end of last year and formed the basis of the proceedings, which will begin on Tuesday in the Senate.
“We have a strong legal foundation. The president has not done anything illegal, and we believe that this will be confirmed during the process, ”one of three sources told reporters about the essence of the document during a telephone press conference.
