Live Trump impeachment trial updates: Senate to debate rules

Check back for updates on the Senate impeachment trial against President Donald Trump.

Roberts admonishes House managers, Trump’s defense team for heated back-and-forth 

Chief Justice John Roberts admonished both the House managers and the president’s counsel after a fiery back and forth debating whether John Bolton should be subpoenaed to testify before the Senate.

“Those addressing the Senate should remember where they are,” Roberts told the panels, advising them to “use language conducive to civil discourse.”

The talking to came after the president’s legal team got into a heated back-and-forth with Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, who said if senators voted against subpoenaing Bolton they would be “part of the coverup.”

“Either you want the truth and you must permit the witnesses or you want a shameful cover-up. History will judge and so will the electorate,” Nadler argued.

Cipollone shot back, calling for Nadler to apologize to the Senate, the president and “most of all, you owe an apology to the American people.”
