>>its story we have been following all league former president trump's second impeachment trial today in day 4 trump's lawyers launched and rested their defense in roughly 3 hours our washington correspondent alexandra le mon joins us now with what will happen next. >>saturday is going to be the big day. >>hey there good evening well first a recap a little of today trump's lawyers attacked the house impeachment managers
5:31 pm
and democrats saying they twisted trump's words and took them out of context. >>this impeachment is completely divorced from the facts, former president donald trump's legal team told senators that no thinking person would believe trump incited the violence on january 6 they selectively edited the president's words over and over again trump's lawyers say the house impeachment managers were dishonest and west out or downplayed much of trump's january 6 speech i know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the capitol building. >>to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard they argued that the peaceful gathering was hijacked by a small group of violent protesters. and when trump told people to fight it was political language that democrats used to so we're going to keep fighting we have to be fighting every every single day certainly the word fight is off limits. >>spare us the hypocrisy in
5:32 pm
faults indignation democratic senator richard blumenthal says there's no comparison when democrats urge their supporters to fight it didn't end with violence and death i think it is. >>plainly a distraction from donald inviting the mob to watch it was armed trump's defense rested their case in roughly 3 hours our country needs to get back to work. >>now earlier tonight, senators wrapped the question portion of the impeachment trial and tomorrow we are expecting closing arguments and possibly a final vote from the senate on whether they will impeach the former president. >>so is there any chance for the enough republican senators are going to vote to convict the former president. >>well democrats would need 17 republicans to join them in order to convict former president trump and you know
5:33 pm
just based on the reactions that we've heard so far from those republican senators. it seems highly unlikely. >>aleksandra thank you so much for updating us on today's events in washington. >>so we have been following the story all weekend. the trial has brought up a lot of questions about how the whole process is working now joining us now to talk about that and the defense team's argument, san jose state university political science lecturer donna crane thank you as always for being with how would you characterize the defense argument, particularly trying to say that. house investigators the house managers are really just putting together a based on vengeance. >>you know what occurred to me as i watched the proceedings today is the saying the best defense is a good offense. i was a little surprised by the combative tone that we heard sometimes from the president's lawyers. you know we talked to this all week this week that it seems they don't need to
5:34 pm
persuade the senators here in order to want to quit all of the president all they have to do is to sort of check a box of the closing argument because they are certain that they have the votes to so i was a little surprised that some of the language is combat it we expected to see some of this sort of both sides arguments whatever we did you guys do it too. and once again return to very sort of baseline are getting it and making all along which is that this impeachment process is not constitutional those of the highlights that i saw today. >>so what is it also say to you that trump's team only use 3 out of the 16 hours that they had to make their defense. what does that say about their level of confidence that they will get an acquittal. >>i think it says they understand they have to do the bare minimum and i think that's what they did. i think they also understand that their primary audience they're not speaking to a jury because
5:35 pm
they feel the votes are they are speaking to their client and then we saw something new a new technique today of the lawyers are now starting to sort of move their vision sometimes and speak directly to the camera that's placed in the chamber not to the senators there speaking be to a audience not to the internal audience. i think those are all signals that they understand they have the votes to what do you make of their argument that this impeachment could set a precedent that would say. >>lead future administrations to impeach a secretary of state for instance who's out of office. >>you know i think that argument is fine and it is people have been impeached and convicted when they have designed so you know not somebody who's resigning or lost an election or long that this is not necessarily new it's always so i don't make make i don't think it's
5:36 pm
percent and what do you see happening on saturday with a vote. you know in theory they could vote tomorrow requests witnesses to come and testify i see no appetite for that so i think final votes tomorrow will occur monday some time. not always takes longer than we and so there will be a vote on whether to convict or acquit and my prediction nothing unique is that they will vote to acquit i see maybe a handful of republicans crossing over i some some of those republicans did not get their questions asked answered satisfactorily today and so i don't see any reason why there that for them to snap back into a partisan position all right. donna crane, thank you for helping us sort through today's activity in washington. >>meanwhile the biden administration is unveiling plans for an estimated 25,000 asylum, seekers wait mexico for their next immigration
