The impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump gets underway today (TUE). The day will likely be devoted to a debate over the constitutionality of holding the trial. U-S Senator Tina Smith says back when the Senate was sworn in for the trial…

“I have to say I was really disappointed to see so many of my Republican colleagues, barely three weeks after our capitol was violently attacked by insurgents, say that they did not think that the president bore any real responsibility for that when he was the one who incited this violence.”

Opening statements in the trial are slated to begin on Wednesday and will likely be spread out over two days.
