WATCH LIVE: Senate Impeachment Trial Day 3

Trump Impeachment

UPDATE:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Democrats are saying that "no president" has ever abused power the way President Donald Trump did toward Ukraine.

They're making their case as they press into the second day of arguments in Trump's historic impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate. They scoffed at Trump's claims that he had good reasons for pressuring Ukraine to investigate his political foes.

They say there is "no evidence, nothing, nada" to suggest former Vice President Joe Biden did anything improper.

The long hours in back-to-back days of proceedings have left some senators yawning, stretching and pacing.

Each side has 24 hours over three days to make its case.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Democrats prosecuting President Donald Trump's impeachment trial are heading into a second day of arguments facing a big challenge.

They're trying to win over not just fidgety senators but an American public deeply divided by the Republican president's actions.

Prosecutors are relying on the same loops of videotaped testimony after Trump's allies in the Republican-controlled Senate blocked new witnesses.

The repetition and the long hours in back-to-back days of proceedings have left some senators yawning, stretching and pacing. Each side has 24 hours over three days to make its case. Trump's defense team is eager for its turn, likely to begin Saturday
