Former President Donald Trump is on trial for a second time in the Senate. This time, the House has impeached Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection. Trump's defense team denies he directly called for violence and argues that he should not be tried since he is no longer in office. The House impeachment managers say he must be held accountable for the violence at the Capitol. Today, Tuesday, February 9, there will be debate over the Constitutionality of the trial. This will be followed by a vote on whether to proceed with the trial at all. Live, on-air coverage from NPR, hosted by Steve Inskeep and Susan Davis begins at 1:00 p.m.
