Day two of the trial on Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020.
The impeachment trial of President Donald Trump began on Tuesday, Jan. 21, after a weekslong impasse over how the Senate trial would proceed, and debate over the rules stretched nearly 13 hours.
Reporting on Day 2 of the trial via The Hill:
House impeachment managers will focus their efforts on day two of the Senate trial pushing President Trump’s defense team to respond to the substance of the charges against him, instead of concentrating on procedural arguments as Republicans have done in recent months.
But before Democrats can make the case for the articles accusing Trump of abuse of power over his dealings with Ukraine and obstruction of Congress, both sides will have to get through the first round of motions that may come up now that the Senate has set its rules for the trial.
The organizing resolution adopted by the Senate early Wednesday morning gives the White House the right to make a motion to dismiss right after the trial rules are adopted.
Such a motion, however, is not expected as Senate Republicans have cautioned for weeks that any effort to dismiss the case before hearing opening arguments does not have the 51 votes need to pass.
Under the organizing resolution introduced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and adopted by a party-line vote of 53 to 47, the president’s lawyers and the House managers have until 9 a.m. Wednesday to file any motions permitted under the rules.
