On Tuesday, Feb. 9, the second impeachment trial of former president Donald Trump will officially begin. And while most networks might not be going all out with special event coverage like they did for the inauguration, CNN will still be bringing you extensive dedicated coverage for as long as the impeachment trial lasts.
CNN has blocked off ten hours of dedicated coverage time for each day of Trump's second impeachment trial, from 9 a.m. ET until 7 p.m. ET. While the cable network hasn't fully detailed what that coverage will look like, you can likely expect the normal cast of characters — Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer, Dana Bash, Don Lemon, Erin Burnett, John King, etc — chiming in over the course of each day.

What are the Republicans doing ?: So it goes on in the impeachment case against Trump
Donald Trump is the first President in the history of the United States to face a second impeachment case. The accusation against Trump in the first trial was abuse of power and obstruction of congressional investigations. For months there were investigations, hearings, and questioning of witnesses. In the end, Trump was acquitted in the Senate by a majority of Republicans.
Trump's first impeachment trial began in December 2019, when he was charged with abuse of power. The House voted to impeach Trump for a second time on Jan. 13, following his incitement of the deadly Capitol riots that left five dead and on false election claims about voter fraud.
argues that Trump "demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security, democracy and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self-governance and the rule of law, citing both his role in inciting the Capitol siege and attempting to subvert the election results."
