Trump Impeachment trial: Former president to be charged with inciting insurrection

FRANCE24, 10 Feb 2021
It is a first-ever second impeachment trial. Special edition on the first day of Donald Trump's impeachment trial before the U-S Senate. He is charged with inciting insurrection when in a bid to stop the certification of his re-election loss, he encouraged a crowd of supporters to march over to the U-S Capitol.
Why the trial of a president who's since left office? We hear arguments from both sides. The trial is a chance to take stock of Trump's star power now that he is a former president and to ask whether it is the epilogue of his four years in office or the start of a new chapter?
