(VOVWORLD) - The US Senate began Tuesday former US President Donald Trump's second impeachment trial on allegations that he incited the fatal January 6 assault on the US Capitol in which five people were killed, including a law enforcement officer.

Donald Trump is the first person to be impeached twice in one presidency, and he faces a Senate trial that could disqualify him from future office. The House of Representatives voted on January 13 to impeach then President Trump for his role in inciting the deadly Capitol attack.

Democrats will need at least 17 Republican senators to break ranks to convict President Donald Trump.
