The Senate is laying the ground rules for the second impeachment trial of former President Trump.

Democrats will attempt to prove that Trump is guilty of inciting a riot by tying his words to the actions of his supporters at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Most Senate Republicans, however, have argued that a president cannot be tried once out of office.

NPR's Domenico Montanaro joins us to discuss the impeachment trial.

This segment aired on February 8, 2021.
