Prosecution case against Trump starts in impeachment trial

Washington Correspondent

The annual Davos schmoozefest is a little quieter after President Trump left the scene this lunchtime.  As might be expected he declared his visit a great success, but he leaves behind a global establishment disappointed by his rhetoric on climate change and in no doubt that America comes first .  And he’s flying back to rancour and recriminations in Washington where the prosecution case against him starts today in his impeachment trial.

Our Washington Correspondent Siobhan Kennedy has been watching the proceedings.
