After a delay of several hours, the trial is back on track with closing arguments and Saturday’s session heading toward a vote on the verdict.

House impeachment manager Rep. Madeleine Dean, after using examples of Donald Trump’s speeches to inciting the January 6 riot, said “we are in a dialogue with history.”

“If we don’t set this right and call it what it was, the highest of constitutional crimes by the president of the United States, the past will not be past. The past will become our future.”

Dean implored the senate jurors, “history has found us. I ask that you not look the other way.”
