Here’s what you need to know to understand the impeachment trial of President Trump.
- What’s happening now: The impeachment trial will reconvene today at 4 p.m. and senators will vote on whether to remove or acquit Trump on impeachment charges. Follow live coverage here.
- What happens next: The Senate is poised to acquit Trump, which means the president would remain in office and the trial would end. Here’s more on what happens next.
- How we got here: A whistleblower complaint led House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to announce the beginning of an official impeachment inquiry on Sept. 24. Closed-door hearings and subpoenaed documents related to the president’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky followed. After two weeks of public hearings in November, the House Intelligence Committee wrote a report that was sent to the House Judiciary Committee, which held its own hearings. Pelosi and House Democrats announced the articles of impeachment against Trump on Dec. 10. The Judiciary Committee approved two articles of impeachment against Trump: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. When the full House of Representatives adopted both articles of impeachment against him on Dec. 18, Trump became the third U.S. president to be impeached.
