Trump backers and critics clash as impeachment trial nearsDonald Trump’s defenders and supporters skirmished over the airwaves on Sunday a day after the US president’s legal team dismissed his impeachment trial as unconstitutional and dangerous. Coming two days before Trump’s trial opens in the Senate, the clashing arguments offered an early taste of the historic drama to play out in coming weeks.
