Just before 2 o'clock this morning, after nearly 12 hours of contentious debate, the Senate approved rules governing the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.  House managers and White House lawyers will each have three days to make their case.  Democrats were unable to get a majority of Senators to guarantee that witnesses would be called and documents would be made available during the course of the trial.

Today, on Midday, analysis of yesterday's historic proceedings with Maryland's former Republican governor, Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., NPR White Correspondent Ayesha Rascoe and University of Maryland Regents law professor Mark Graber.

 

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
