Wednesday marks the next phase of the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump: the question-and-answer period.

Senators will have a total of 16 hours over two days to probe House impeachment managers as well as the White House defense team, which have had three days each to deliver their arguments.

Senators are still divided on whether to hear from witnesses, and it's unlikely the issue will be resolved on Wednesday.
