Please Explain podcast: Is a compelling case enough to convict Donald Trump?

US Democrats have just wrapped up making their case for why former President Donald Trump should be impeached for inciting the violence that overtook the Capitol on January 6.

The historic trial of a non-sitting president has been shown new footage of the events that day, including how close the mob came to Vice President Mike Pence and that there was a group essentially hunting through the building for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

Today on Please Explain Daily, Tory Maguire is joined by US Correspondent Matthew Knott to talk through the trial, Trump’s possible defence tactics and the likelihood of the Senate convicting him.
