The Senate impeachment trial against former President Donald Trump started today, Feb. 9 at 1:00 p.m. ET and will continue for the next several days. During his last days as president of the United States, the House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump 232-197 on one article: “incitement to insurrection”.

The Senate trial focuses on Trump’s role in instigating it attack on Capitol Hill January 6 that resulted in five deaths and dozens of arrests. Just before the riot, Trump spoke to followers at a rally in Washington, DC, to falsely claim 2020 election fraud in an effort to prevent Congress from confirming President Joe Biden’s victory. After the events of the day, Trump’s Twitter account temporarily and then permanently suspended, just like other social media accounts.

Trump has rejected the request to testify under oath before or at the Senate trial. A formal letter (PDF) from the impeachment manager of the House Chief, Rep. Jamie Raskin, says Trump “denied many of the factual allegations in the article of impeachment.”

Trump is the first president in history to be impeached twice and the first president to be subject to impeachment at the end of his term. If two-thirds of the senate votes to condemn Trump, there could be an additional vote to disqualify Trump from re-entering public office.
