Demonstrators at the U.S. Senate call for the impeachment of President Trump on January 6, 2020.

This week in the impeachment trial of President Trump: late nights, passionate arguments and a partisan divide over what counts as an impeachable offense.

He joined Diane Friday morning to offer his analysis of the arguments being made on both sides – and how persuasive they may be to the U.S. Senate and the American public.
