Watch Live: Trump Impeachment Trial In The Senate

Updated on Saturday at 1:32 p.m. ET

Donald Trump's historic second impeachment trial appeared back on track to conclude on Saturday after the defense wrapped up its arguments in a single day and senators had time to ask their questions on Friday.

The direction of the proceedings shifted unexpectedly Saturday morning after the Senate voted 55-45 to hear from witnesses. But a few hours later, a deal was reached to avoid witnesses and move to closing arguments.

Trump is facing a single impeachment charge, incitement of an insurrection, for his role in urging a mob to attack the Capitol complex on Jan. 6.
