The Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump saw around 8.9 million TV viewers tune in on Wednesday, marking a notable drop from the roughly 11 million viewers on Tuesday.

According to Nielsen rating data, the TV audience plummeted by 19 percent between Tuesday’s session, which was consumed by procedural matters after Democrat began pushing for the removal of the president.

The audience includes viewers watching the impeachment trial from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm EST on Walt Disney Co’s ABC, AT&T Inc’s CNN, ViacomCBS’s CBS, Comcast Corp’s NBC and MSNBC, and Fox Corp’s Fox News.

The trial then continued until 9:43 p.m. EST.

On Friday, impeachment "manager" Jerry Nadler said Trump's alleged 'abuse of power' threatens the republic.

Nadler began the second day of the Democrats' impeachment trial in the Senate by accusing Trump of "abuse of power, betrayal of the nation, and corruption in elections into a single unforgivable scheme."

"A president who sees no limit on his power manifestly threatens the republic," Nadler said.

The Judiciary Committee Chairman later said that Trump's alleged actions meet the Constitutional standard for high crimes and misdemeanors and removal from office.

House Judiciary Chairman Adam Schiff said Trump's alleged misconduct couldn’t be proven at the ballot box, but only through his impeachment.

Schiff made the remarks during his opening statement on Wednesday.

“If not remedied by his conviction in the Senate and removal from office, President Trump’s abuse of his office and obstruction of Congress will permanently alter the balance of power among the branches of government,” the congressman said.

The California Democrat accused Trump of attempting to “use the powers of the presidency to cheat in an election.”

On Wednesday, Neon Nettle reported Schiff provided false information after he "mischaracterized" evidence.

The Democrat appears to have twisted a piece of evidence in a way that makes it more fitting with the Democrats' anti-Trump case for impeaching the president.
