The historic second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump will begin this afternoon as the Senate hears arguments about his role in the January 6 Capitol riots. Trump, who stands accused of “incitement of insurrection,” was impeached by the House of Representatives last month. The Senate now must decide whether to convict, although with few Republicans on board, that outcome does not seem likely at the moment.
