Representative Adam Schiff, who heads the Democratic prosecution team, said that Trump, if left in office, would continue to seek foreign interference in the November 3 election in which he is asking voters to give him four more years as president.
Senators acknowledge the House Democratic managers have essentially proven their case, that Trump abused power and obstructed Congress, by leveraging USA military aid to push Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden to thwart the 2020 election.
House lawmakers prosecuting the impeachment case against U.S. President Donald Trump and the president's defense team each have two hours Monday to make their closing arguments. "He shouldn't have done it".
Numerous protests will occur near or outside the offices of Republican senators, who voted against witnesses because they believed more evidence was not needed to reach a conclusion on Trump's innocence.

Trump has called the impeachment effort an attempted coup by Democrats.
With the 2020 presidential election nine months away, the White House defense team implored senators to "leave it to the voters" to decide who should be president.
By yesterday, this Trump's-guilty-but-we-don't-care contingent had grown to a size that would've been hard to predict when the impeachment trial first began a few weeks ago - when the principal Republican line was that the charges against the president were baseless. 46% of voters polled said he should be removed, while 49% said he should remain - a similar margin to the results of a December NBC/WSJ poll conducted before the trial.
In an interview Sunday, he refused to say if his committee would subpoena the former national security adviser to testify on his book after the impeachment trial ends.
Cipollone closed his arguments saying that the decision whether to remove Trump from office or to acquit is one that will test the faith of the American people. White House Legislative Affairs Director Eric Ueland told reporters Friday that the inability to acquit Trump before his annual speech to Congress will not interfere "with his ability to deliver a strong and confident State of the Union message".
A narrow majority of Americans believe Trump abused his power and obstructed Congress by withholding documents and testimony during the impeachment inquiry, according to a new NBC/WSJ poll.
U.S. President Donald speaks in the East Room of the White House, in Washington, on January 31, 2020.
"We've still got some time". "What the House Democrats have done to this nation, to the Constitution, to the office of the president, to the president himself and to this body (the Senate) is outrageous".
"But I'm not letting the senators off the hook".
Following the closing arguments, the Senate will adjourn as a court of impeachment and open a legislative session during which senators will have the floor for 10 minutes each to make remarks. It's why, in the senator's mind, there's no need for any kind of accountability, or even additional scrutiny.
Senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar will all be in Washington, DC, for at least part of the day before the Iowa caucus begins on Monday night.
