ABOVE VIDEO: Senate begins impeachment trial of Donald Trump.

(FOX NEWS) – Former President Donald Trump has been out of office for nearly three weeks, but he is still expected to command the full attention of the legislative branch and the country in the coming days as the Senate begins his second impeachment trial, barely one year after his first.

The former president was impeached on Jan. 13, just one week after a pro-Trump mob overtook the Capitol as Congress and former Vice President Mike Pence were certifying the results of President Biden’s win in the 2020 election.

Democrats in Congress, and even some Republicans, were outraged that the former president had gathered a rally in Washington, D.C., that day where he repeated his false claims that he won the presidential election and said he did not do enough to stop the attack once his supporters began to breach the Capitol about one hour after his rally’s conclusion.

But Trump’s defenders say he is not responsible for the actions of the criminals that menaced lawmakers and attacked police, and note that later in the day he told his supporters in a Twitter video to go home.
