The Senate impeachment trial of US President Donald Trump has begun. Republican Senate Majority leader, Mitch McConnell, wants to block subpoenaing key witnesses or documents. While the Democrats say this will be no less than a cover-up.

Mr Trump is charged with abusing his presidential power with leverage over Ukraine, and of obstructing Congress as it looked into his conduct. He denies all the charges.

Part of the BBC News at Ten’s coverage, presented by Huw Edwards with reporting from our North America Editor Jon Sopel.
