The Senate impeachment trial of US President Donald Trump has officially begun. The third trial of a US president in history convened on Thursday with the reading of the impeachment articles against Trump, who is being tried for for high crimes and misdemeanors.

The Senate ceremonial functions of the impeachment trial were conducted on Thursday before the actual arguments that will get underway next Tuesday.
