Trump Impeachment Trial Day 3: Democrats urge Senate to convict former President

After 2 days of presentations, including rare video footages of Jan 6 when a mob stormed the US capitol, Democrats rested their case asking all the senators to vote for conviction.

The House Impeachment managers on Thursday completed their arguments against Donald Trump, urging senators to not vote in favour of Donald Trump otherwise it would set a dangerous precedent for the country in the future. `

After 2 days of presentations, including rare video footages of Jan 6 when a mob stormed the US capitol, Democrats rested their case asking all the senators to vote for conviction.

"We humbly, humbly, ask you to convict President Trump for the crime for which he is overwhelmingly guilty. Because if you don't, if we pretend this didn't happen, or worse, if we let it go unanswered, who's to say it won't happen again?" House impeachment manager Joe Neguse said in his closing remarks, reported CNN.

A vote on the article of impeachment will be decided after four hours of closing arguments and an unspecified amount of time for senators to deliberate.
