Lawyers: Trump didn’t incite riot, trial unconstitutional

MGN - Trump

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump's lawyers are denying that he played a role in inciting the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol and say that the Senate impeachment trial is unconstitutional.

The lawyers filed their brief Tuesday ahead of next week's trial on accusations that he provoked the siege of the Jan. 6 siege of the Capitol through his baseless efforts to overturn the results of the presidential election.
