    The first day of the ex-POTUS' second impeachment trial resulted in a 56-44 vote that found the proceedings were constitutional and would therefore continue.

    On Wednesday, the US geared up for another day of ex-President Donald Trump's impeachment trial. 

    He's facing charges that he incited an "insurrection" before his supporters stormed the Capitol building on 6 January.

    Starting 10 February, House managers and Trump’s defence team will have two eight-hour shifts each to present their arguments for why the former president should be convicted or acquitted of the charges.
