Trump’s defenders are claiming that it's 'unconstitutional' to hold an impeachment trial for a former president, even though most constitutional scholars say otherwise, and there is historical precedent for trying a federal official who has already left office.

After 4 hours of arguments from the nine House impeachment managers and Trump's lawyers, the Senate will then vote on whether the trial is constitutional. If a simple majority of senators votes yes, the trial will proceed tomorrow with multiple days of arguments from both sides.

Trump is the only president in history to be impeached twice. If convicted, he could be barred from ever holding federal office again.
