On this edition of Your Call, we recap the first day of Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial. House impeachment managers say Trump is “singularly responsible” for the deadly attack on the Capitol on January 6th.
After today's opening arguments, the Senate voted 56-44 to declare that the impeachment trial is constitutional. Six Republicans voted to move forward with the trial. If all Democrats unanimously vote to convict Trump, at least 17 Republicans must join them. What questions do you have?
