This from Chief Justice John Roberts swore in senators last week to officially begin the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, but the trial starts in earnest Tuesday afternoon, when Republicans and Democrats are expected to battle over a resolution setting the rules for the trial and start opening arguments shortly afterward. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will propose a timeline for the trial that would break from the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton.

It’s possible senators will vote to go into closed session in order to debate the issues that divide them because impeachment rules prevent them from speaking publicly during the trial.

The trial will start Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET, after which it will run six days a week, Monday through Saturday, also starting at 1 p.m. The condensed timeline for opening arguments proposed in McConnell’s resolution raises the prospect that the trial, at least in its first week, will feature 12-hour days and stretch late into the night.
The first session on Tuesday, when they deal with the organizing resolution, may go past 6 p.m., according to aides in each party.

Will the senate remove Trump from office as a result of the senate trial?
