Trump legal team: Articles of impeachment violate Constitution - reports

United States President Donald Trump's legal team issued on Saturday a "very detailed" six-page response to the impeachment trial that started in the Senate earlier in the week, according to media reports.

The lawyers reportedly called the process a "dangerous attack on the right of the people to freely choose their president" and claimed that the articles of impeachment violate the Constitution. These articles, the response will reportedly say, do not include proof of quid pro quo nor proof of criminal activity.

A source close to Trump's legal team told a Voice of America reporter that facts prove "the president did absolutely nothing wrong."
