Democrats have started laying out a detailed case for the removal of President Donald Trump, accusing him at his historic Senate impeachment trial of seeking to cheat to ensure re-election in November.

House impeachment manager Adam Schiff speaks during the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump in the Senate."And when he was caught, he used the powers of that office to obstruct the investigation into his own misconduct," Mr Schiff, who headed the probe that led to Mr Trump's A two-thirds majority - or 67 senators - is required to remove a president from office and a series of votes on the ground rules for the trial on Tuesday followed strict party lines.Republicans, who hold a 53 to 47 edge in the Senate, have shown little inclination, however, to break ranks with a president who has a history of lashing out ferociously at his perceived enemies.

Mr Trump, who was attending the World Economic Forum in Davos as the historic trial got underway on Tuesday, blasted the proceedings as a"witch hunt" and a"hoax" and said he expected the Republican-led Senate to clear him"fairly quickly.

"They are trying to remove President Trump's name from the ballot and they can't prove their case," Mr Cipollone said.The next few days are likely to be an endurance test for members of the Senate, some of whom are in their 80s.

Historic day in Washington as Donald Trump impeachment trial begins in the SenateSenators are expected to vote on a resolution setting the rules for the trial. I'll lay odds the impeachment will go nowhere and Trump will be re-elected for a second term. Clinton has just proved how stupidly divided the Democrats are. Sadly, like Labor in Australia and Labour in the UK, they offer no vision, or leadership, just rehashed tired politicians. The impeachment 'acquittal' has started 🥳🇺🇸😉🇦🇺 What a farce

Donald Trump rejects environmental 'prophets of doom' in Davos addressDonald Trump has lashed out at the 'perennial prophets of doom' who warn that the world is in a major environmental crisis, as he addressed an audience in Davos including Greta Thunberg. One should always lash out at educated, knowledgeable people, experts if you will, who actually know what the fuck they’re talking about, as opposed to realDonaldTrump, who is one of the worst human beings of whom I am aware. Doubt anyone is taking notice of Trump's speech. It's only more of the same, he never stops praising himself 😳 Wgy should that surprise anyone?! Just look at the States, what do you think rules it? Greed?! One of the seven deadly sins!
