The impeachment trial of President Donald Trump resumes Wednesday with House Democrats beginning their opening arguments.

The House managers–seven Democrats who will serve as the “prosecutors” in the impeachment trial–will have 24 hours broken up over three days to present their case. The White House will then have the same amount of time to present its defense.

All 100 U.S. senators are considering two articles of impeachment–abuse of power and obstruction of Congress–against Trump. The House approved the articles along party lines in December and impeached the president.
