(Newser) – The third day of President Trump's impeachment trial ended with lead impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff making an emotional plea to Senate Republicans. The Democrat warned that the president will continue to put his own interests first if he is allowed to remain in office, the Hill reports. "You know you can't trust this president to do what's right for this country," Schiff said, warning that Trump would be unlikely to stop Russian interference in this year's election. He told senators that Trump should be removed, "Because right matters. Because right matters and truth matters. Otherwise we are lost." To have Trump removed from office, Schiff will need 20 Republican votes. More:
