Join News Views for a Live Discussion on the Senate Impeachment Trial of Donald J. Trump.

Opening arguments begin Tuesday in the Republican-led Senate trial of President Donald Trump, who last year became the third president in history to be impeached by the House of Representatives.

***Some parts of the hearing will not be broadcasted because the Senators cannot speak during the trial. They will recess to discuss matters that the general public will not hear.

The Senate convenes at 12:30 PM ET/9:30 AM PT.

News Views will open the doors early to discuss analysis, developments, etc., before the actual hearing begins.

Seven Democrats have been named as managers to prosecute the House’s case, including Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff of California and Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York. White House counsel Pat Cipollone and Trump’s personal lawyer, Jay Sekulow, are expected to take the lead in arguing the president’s case.

On Friday, Trump added two members to his legal team: Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr. Both nationally known attorneys and regular pundits on Fox News, Dershowitz has a background in constitutional law, while Starr is famous for having led the investigation into former President Bill Clinton.

PBS:

***It appears PBS will only air live the actual hearing. Thanks to Anon, I’ve edited in a CBS video that has discussion, interviews, etc. Or, you can do what I have and turn on the tele to MSNBC, CNN, or whatever.
