Rep. Jerry Nadler, a House manager, said President Donald Trump’s argument — that Congress does not have the authority to remove him from office if it disapproves of his conduct — is “terrifying.” “It confirms that this president sees no limits on his power or his ability to use his public office for private gain,” Nadler said. The White House will give its defense after the House managers have been allowed 24 hours over the course of three days to present their case. The House of Representatives impeached the president in December on two articles — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The trial will determine whether Trump is convicted of those charges and removed from office, or acquitted.
