Binne die Senaatsaal: Sketse van dag 1 van die beskuldigingsverhoor

The first day of the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump went as anticipated, with the Senate determining the trial is constitutional.

But TV viewers didn’t see it all. The cameras are controlled by the Senate and present a selective view of the proceedings. While the House impeachment managers and Trump’s lawyers spoke, byvoorbeeld, the camera was a head-on shot of them only.
Just as with last year’s trial, artist Bill Hennessy is in the Senate chamber, delivering scenes from what the cameras won’t or can’t show.
Here are sketches from Tuesday:
