Day five highlights as Republicans make their defence in the impeachment trial against Donald Trump.

It's day five of the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump and the Republican defence council have commenced their arguments in the Senate.

White House Counsel Pat Cipollone started the proceeding by claiming the Democrats had put forward no evidence and had "fallen far short" of the burden of evidence. He pressed the seriousness of removing a president from office and urged senators to reflect on the precedents being set.

Trump's personal lawyer Jay Sekulow referenced the Mueller Report and stressed how it's finding failed to establish a link between Trump's presidential campaign and Russian interference.

White House Council Michael Purpura stated the evidence showed "the President did nothing wrong"

The Deputy White House Council questioned why the Democrats decided not to hear unfiltered testimony from the whistleblower who sparked the investigation into Ukraine.
