The second impeachment trial against former US President Donald Trump has begun in the Senate. Voting began on Tuesday with a video of the January 6 riots in Capitol Hill. The Senate opines that the impeachment test against Trump is constitutional, while most Republicans are against the proceedings. This is the first time in the history of America, when impeachment is going on against a former president even after the completion of his term.
The US Senate on Tuesday voted 56-44 to pursue the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. Sinnett rejected his defense team’s argument that impeachment after leaving office was not constitutional. On Wednesday, 6 Republican members also justified the impeachment against Trump and voted for it.
In fact, on Tuesday, voting was held on whether impeachment can be conducted against the former president even after he leaves office, in which the impeachment trial continues on Wednesday in Senate after 6 Republicans voted in this favor.
The House Democrats, who are hearing the matter, told the senators that they were presenting hard facts and evidence against Trump, which proved that he had instigated and incited the mob that carried out the violence in the Capitol Building.
Several senators, who have trapped there on the day of the violence themselves, were watching videos of Trump supporters’ violence during the proceedings, in which they were scrambling with the police and also waving Trump’s flag.

He is not guilty of the only charge of “inciting rebellion”, a figure of speech in his furious words as he encouraged a rally crowd to “hell like a president”.
