The Democrats capped three days of arguments in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial with lead House manager Rep. Adam Schiff, who attempted to knock down some of Trump’s potential defenses ahead of ceding center stage to the president’s lawyers Saturday.

He appealed to the senators’ faith in American ideals, urging them to consider this trial’s place in history and the world. “From all over the world, they look to us — and increasingly, they don’t recognize what they see,” Schiff said. “Americans get a fair trial — and so I ask you, I implore you. Give America a fair trial…She’s worth it.”
