WATCH: Trump impeachment trial is about ensuring that votes matter, Rep. Demings says

The impeachment trial of President Donald Trump is about more than any one president or one election, Rep. Val Demings, a House manager, said during her arguments on the Senate floor on Jan. 23. “This moment is about the American people. This moment is about ensuring that every voter, whether a maid or a janitor, whether a nurse, a teacher or a truck driver, whether a doctor or a mechanic, that their vote matters, and that American elections are decided by the American people,” Demings, D-Fla., said. House managers have been allowed 24 hours over the course of three days to present their case. The White House will then make its defense. The House of Representatives impeached the president in December on two articles–abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The trial will determine whether Trump is convicted of those charges and removed from office, or acquitted.

Bernie Sanders on Trump impeachment: "No President can be above the law"

Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill Thursday, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders admitted that while the start of the impeachment trial in the Senate isn’t a 「happy day for the country」 it was important to establish for future generations that 「no President is above the law.」

The chief justice of the United States was sworn in Thursday to preside over President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, then immediately swore in the entire Senate body in turn with an oath to ensure “impartial justice” as jurors for only the third such proceeding in American history.

The Senate opened the impeachment trial at the start of the election year as Trump seeks another term, a test not only of his presidency but also of the nation’s three branches of power and its system of checks and balances. Several senators are running for the Democratic Party’s nomination to challenge Trump in November.
