Former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial will continue on Feb. 10. He is accused of “incitement of insurrection” after the deadly Capitol riot. The first day of the Senate trial opened with House managers playing a graphic video of the Jan. 6 takeover interspersed with the former president’s words.
Rep. Jamie B. Raskin (D-Md.) argued that Trump’s lawyers have misconstrued the Constitution by arguing that presidents cannot be tried by the Senate after leaving office. Doing so, he said, would allow a president to do “anything he may want to do” during his final month in office.
