President Trump Impeachment Hearing: Senators Question Both Sides

The first of two days of question-and-answer sessions got underway Wednesday at President Trump’s impeachment trial, where senators got their first opportunity to participate in the proceedings.

Chief Justice John Roberts posed written questions submitted by senators to House impeachment managers and the president’s legal team, with questions alternating between parties.  Most of the questioning Wednesday was a continuation of the arguments each side made over the first six days of proceedings. Some asked for clarification on the process of the impeachment inquiry, or about the evidence collected in the House probe.

The first day of questioning wrapped up around 11 p.m. with another session beginning Thursday at 1 p.m. For full, up-to-date details on Wednesday’s session, click the link below.
