Four of the seven House impeachment managers for President Trump’s Senate trial spoke with “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell about their case for the president’s removal and why they disagree with his argument that abuse of power is not a crime. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said Republicans’ push for Hunter Biden to testify would be an "abuse” of the trial.
Senate Democrats blasted Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's proposed rule for the president's impeachment trial, which says none of the evidence collected in the House impeachment inquiry will be admitted unless the Senate votes to enter it.

Paula Reid reports on whether he can stay focused on that positive economic message and not on his frustration with the impeachment process back at home.
