United States President Donald Trump's impeachment trial has concluded opening arguments.

YEN gathers that senators will now be allowed to ask questions, but this portion of the impeachment will be unusually quiet, with questions submitted in writing.

This portion of the trial is expected to continue for two days, giving lawyers on both sides the opportunity to make their final points before the next portion of the process gets underway.

Questions must be submitted to the presiding officer, Chief Justice John Roberts, who will then read them aloud and request an answer.

The aim of this is to keep the proceedings quiet, allowing for a jury-like silence as senators deliberate on the matter.

Senators will be asked to vote on whether or not to listen to witnesses and, eventually, whether or not to boot Trump from office.

Senator Chris commented that an 'obvious question' is whether or not the transcript at the heart of the trial is a full transcript.

IOL reports that a July phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymir Zelenskiy is a full transcript.

During the call, the US President asks Zelenskiy to investigate Democrats, while the White House has released a transcript of the call, it isn't transparent what was omitted.
