The Congress opened Thursday’s accusation of President Donald Trump, with House Democrats reading the formal indictments from the source of the US Senate.
Later, Chief Judge John Roberts, who will preside over the trial, will take the oath to senators who will serve as jurors and swear to give “impartial justice.”
House speaker Nancy Pelosi said new evidence reinforces the need for senators to call witnesses. She warned them not to become ‘all the henchmen of the president’.
The full trial starts next week.
