WATCH: Donald Trump’s impeachment trial

Prosecutors wrapped up an emotional two days of opening arguments in the impeachment former President Donald Trump. Trump’s defense will take the floor on Friday.

The proceedings could wind up with a vote this weekend. The Democrats, with little hope of conviction by two-thirds of the Senate, are made their most graphic case to the American public, while Trump’s lawyers are focused on legal rather than emotional or historic questions, hoping to get it all behind him as quickly as possible.

Trump is standing trial before the Senate this week on an impeachment charge that accuses him of inciting the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
