President Trump's Senate impeachment trial will conclude Wednesday with a final vote (4 p.m. ET) to acquit him on two articles brought by the House — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — after senators continue their debate on the issue.
Happening now: Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.), a key moderate Democratic swing vote, announced that he would vote to convict Trump.
This story will be updated as the debate and trial continues.
- Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) said that he hopes Democrats "accept the results" of the impeachment trial and do not attempt to open a second impeachment process — as House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) said that it was "likely" House Democrats would subpoena former national security adviser John Bolton.
What to watch: Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah) is the sole Republican swing vote who has not yet indicated whether he will vote for acquit.
- A pair of other moderate Senate Democrats, Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.), have not yet announced their decision regarding the vote.
