How To Watch the Senate Trial Online from Other Sources

You can watch the Senate impeachment trial live on starting at 1 p.m. Eastern (but the Senate will be called into session at 12 p.m. Eastern.) Most people (including schedules listed on the TV Guide) are expecting today’s trial to wrap up between 6 and 7 p.m. Eastern. However, there’s a distinct possibility that it could go on longer, possibly even lasting for 12 hours until 1 a.m. Eastern, CNN reported.

The link to watch on C-SPAN’s website is here. This is officially day 2 of the Senate impeachment trial, but the first day consisted mostly of swearing in officials. C-SPAN is providing live, gavel-to-gavel uninterrupted coverage on the Senate floor.

CNN is also offering impeachment trial streaming on its own homepage without requiring a cable log-in. CNN told Heavy: “In addition to live reporting and analysis across CNN Digital platforms, CNN will be live streaming this week’s Senate impeachment trial live in its entirety, without requiring log–in to a cable provider, to’s homepage, across mobile devices via CNN’s apps for iOS and Android, and via CNNgo apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast and Android TV.”

Today’s Schedule

Democrats want to call witnesses, but Mitch McConnell’s resolution doesn’t allow for that. So debates on these topics will be in a closed session, AP noted. Expect much of today to revolve around resolutions for organizing the impeachment, along with motions on evidence and witnesses. In fact, some expect Trump’s legal team might move to dismiss the entire trial.

Today’s trial could end around 7 p.m. Eastern or last longer (but no longer than 1 a.m. Eastern.) If all the resolutions pass, then opening arguments could begin Wednesday at 1 p.m. Eastern until 1 a.m. Eastern.
