Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday dug in on his demand that the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump include new documents and testimony after revelation of administration emails that show officials questioned the legality of delaying aid to Ukraine.

“The newly revealed unredacted emails are a devastating blow to Sen. McConnell’s push to have a trial without the documents and witnesses we’ve requested,” Schumer said in a statement, referring to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “These emails further expose the serious concerns raised by Trump administration officials about the propriety and legality of the president’s decision to cut off aid to Ukraine to benefit himself.”
