US Senate votes to proceed with Trump impeachment trial

Posted on

The US Senate has voted to proceed with the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, rejecting the defence argument that it is unconstitutional to try a former president.
The Senate voted 56-44 that the trial is constitutional as some Republicans joined most Democrats in rejecting Trump’s argument.
