President Trump’s defense began its presentation Saturday in an abbreviated session of a historic impeachment trial by arguing that Trump had done nothing wrong in his dealings with Ukraine and that Democrats had presented a selective record.

The two-hour presentation, led by White House counsel Pat Cipollone and Trump personal lawyer Jay Sekulow, followed a three-day opening argument by House managers, led by Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.), who urged Trump’s removal from office for alleged abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The crux of House Democrats’ case is the allegation that Trump withheld military aid and a White House meeting to pressure Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, a political rival, as well as his son Hunter Biden, who served on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, while his father was vice president.

When the trial resumes next week, Trump’s lawyers are expected to argue that the president was justified in seeking the investigation because of a history of corruption involving the company.
