Defence lawyers in Donald Trump’s insurrection incitement charge say evidence presented before the US Senate is a monstrous.
Lawyers Michael Van Der Veen called the impeachment proceedings against the former President as politically motivated, and witch hunt by the Democrats.
Mr. Trump is however accused of causing riots in the Capitol on January 6th which left five people dead.
He denies the charge.
Most Republicans have indicated they will not vote to convict Mr. Trump.
The defence team took less than four of its 16 hours, trying to move the impeachment trial to a speedy end.
