Demonstrators at the U.S. Senate call for the impeachment of President Trump on January 6, 2020.

This week in the impeachment trial of President Trump: late nights, passionate arguments and a partisan divide over what counts as an impeachable offense.

Over three days, with Power Points and video, the Democratic House managers made their case for the two articles of impeachment. Next up comes the White House lawyers who will defend President Trump in front the U.S. Senate.

Frank Bowman is a professor at the University of Missouri School of Law and author of “High Crimes & Misdemeanors: A History of Impeachment for the Age of Trump.”

He joined Diane Friday morning to offer his analysis of the arguments being made on both sides – and how persuasive they may be to the U.S. Senate and the American public.
