Senate impeachment trial: Trump's defense team takes center stage – CNN, CNN

(CNN) Now the tables will turn in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

After three days of arguments from the House impeachment managers, the President’s legal team will take over the Senate floor to deliver their side of the story, detailing the defense of the President against the two articles of impeachment.

The President’s team is delivering its presentation as Senate Republicans feel more confident that the House managers did not convince enough fence-sitting Republicans to vote for additional witnesses that would extend the trial beyond next week – and that the trial is now the defense team’s to lose .

The President’s team, led by White House counsel Pat Cipollone and the President’s personal attorney Jay Sekulow , is expected to begin its argument for two-to-three hours on Saturday at am ET, in what Sekulow told reporters would be a “sneak preview” of the full argument they will deliver beginning on Monday. A source from the President’s team said the defense would “present a robust defense on both the facts and the law, on the substance of the President’s conduct. “
