Donald Trump impeachment trial: everything you need to know about the events in the Senate

Donald Trump’s impeachment trial begins in Washington today.

Mr Trump is the first former president to face an impeachment trial and the first to be impeached twice.

The charge relates to a provocative speech delivered by Mr Trump ahead of the Jan 6 assault on the US Capitol – an address Democrats argue incited the riots. 

If convicted, the trial could bar Mr Trump from running for, or holding, public office again.
