SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico's senior U.S. senator says he intends to hear all the evidence at the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump before making a decision.

Democratic Sen. Tom Udall was sworn in Thursday for the upcoming trial.

Udall spokesman Ned Adriance said in an email that Udall is pushing for a full and fair trial to ensure that the facts are fully uncovered.

Democratic Sen. Martin Heinrich said he took an oath to "solemnly do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws."

Two articles of impeachment charge Trump with abuse of power by pressuring Ukraine to help him politically and obstructing Congress's probe into what happened. Udall has been a critic of Trump on a wide range of issues.
