Senate Democratic leader Charles Schumer said Tuesday morning his party will present new evidence against former President Trump in his impeachment trial that begins after noon. 

Schumer, a New York Democrat, spoke at the U.S. Capitol building and said Democratic House impeachment managers “will present a very strong case” that Trump as president incited the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill, according to The Washington Times.

"The evidence will be powerful," Schumer said, according to the newspaper. "Some of it will be new."
