Over the weekend, President Trump repeated his perspective on the trial, saying he was the victim of a politically motivated attempt to undermine his presidency and remove him from the White House.
After Monday's session, the Senate will adjourn until 3 p.m. (CST) Wednesday, when senators are scheduled to officially vote on the articles of impeachment.
Trump's acquittal is expected, as 20 Republicans would have to join the Democratic caucus to vote against the president.
The lawyers' final pitches to senators on Monday follow a vote to block witnesses and the introduction of new evidence into the trial.
