The Senate Trial Resumes Each Afternoon: Each Day after 1 p.m., CBN News will provide Video ABOVE for Live Coverage of the Impeachment Trial
Congressional Democrats have taken their impeachment effort against President Donald Trump to the US Senate where a trial phase is now taking place.
As the first session of the trial began Tuesday afternoon, Senate Chaplain Barry Black led lawmakers in prayer to God saying, "We declare that You alone are our hope."
Democrats in the House of Representatives have sent their prosecutors to the Senate to try and convince senators to remove President Trump from office. The president's defenders are finally given the chance to officially present his case since Democrats didn't allow his side during the House process.
Trial rules allow each side 24 hours to present their case over three days. House managers begin their prosecution when proceedings pick back up today as the jury of senators sits silently and listens.
Democrats are demanding the Senate call up new witnesses to testify against Trump in the Senate trial. Republicans say Democrats already called up their own witness during the House hearings and they seem unlikely to call up new ones.
