    The Senate will vote Tuesday on whether former President Donald Trump can be tried after leaving office. The U.S. House’s single article of impeachment against Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol was delivered Monday.

    Senate President Pro Tempore Patrick Leahy administered the oath swearing in his Senate colleagues as jurors for Trump’s impeachment trial.

    Leahy, the most senior Senate Democrat, will preside over the trial, the main part of which will begin the week of Feb. 8 after House prosecutors and Trump’s defense team file briefs.

    The Senate will then consider an attempt by Republican Senator Rand Paul to force a vote on whether it is constitutional to try a president who no longer is in office.
