Trump impeachment: Opening arguments begin in Senate trial | LIVE

Opening arguments will begin in former president Donald Trump’s 2nd impeachment trial on Wednesday after an emotional first day ended with the Senate voting to hear the case for convicting the former president of inciting the riot at the U.S. Capitol even though he is no longer in office.

A majority of the U.S. Senate on Tuesday voted to hold a full impeachment trial of Trump when they backed Democrats’ argument that the proceeding is allowed under the U.S. Constitution.

Trump’s lawyers argued that as a former president, the Senate has no legal standing for holding a trial on the House of Representatives’ impeachment charge that he incited an insurrection while in office.
