Adam Schiff Closing Argument — Jan 23, 2020 link
Here is a partial transcript of the summation argument:
Lead House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) ended Thursday night’s arguments in the Senate trial by emotionally insisting that “right matters” and “we’re lost” if the truth is simply tossed aside.
“If right doesn’t matter — if right doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter how good the Constitution is. It doesn’t matter how brilliant the framers were,” he proclaimed. “Doesn’t matter how good or bad our advocacy in this trial is. Doesn’t matter how well written the oath of impartiality is. If right doesn’t matter, we’re lost. If the truth doesn’t matter, we’re lost.”

The core of the argument went basically like this:
The Truth matters. Right matter.
And you know we can’t trust Donald Trump to protect our National Interest, over his personal self-interest.
You know you can’t trust him to act in our best National Interest.
And that makes him dangerous to this country — and why Donald Trump must be removed.
You know you can’t count on him to do the right thing for this country.
You know you can only trust he will do the right thing for Donald Trump.
