Impeachment trial: Trump’s Senate trial set to begin

1 min read

The Senate impeachment trial of former president Donald Trump is set to begin on Tuesday, as several key details regarding the duration and structure of the trial remain unsettled, according to reports.

Lawyers for both sides submitted pre-trial briefs on Monday ahead of this week’s proceedings regarding the former president’s role in the January 6 attack on the US Capitol building.

Trump’s attorneys submitted a pre-trial brief accusing Democrats of conducting “political theater.” House managers responded, saying that the evidence of Trump’s conduct is “overwhelming.”

The ex-president’s legal team and House managers offered their initial arguments for and against Trump on February 2. The Senate is unlikely to achieve the two-thirds majority vote required to convict the former president, according to news outlets. The House voted on January 13 to impeach Trump.

Lawyers for the former president called his Senate trial “political theater” in a briefing filed on Monday. House managers had until 12 pm ET to submit a response.
