Former President Trump’s second impeachment trial continues for its third day on Thursday, February 11.
Senators are considering whether to convict the former president of incitement of insurrection after a mob of his supporters overran the U.S. Capitol in a deadly attack on January 6.
CBSN will air the trial in full and CBSN’s Elaine Quijano will provide analysis after it has concluded for the day. CBSN coverage begins 30 minutes before the trial starts each day. On CBS television stations, “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell will anchor special report coverage of the impeachment proceedings from Washington, D.C.
On the first day of the trial, the Democratic House impeachment managers presented a dramatic 13-minute video that showed the chaos at the Capitol on January 6 juxtaposed with Mr. Trump’s speech to supporters earlier in the day, when he urged his followers to “fight like hell.” On Wednesday, the impeachment managers showed never-before-seen footage from January 6 that showed just how close the rioters were to many members of Congress, including video of Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman steering Senator Mitt Romney away from the mob.
