Donald Trump is only the third time in American history that a president is on trial after being impeached.
The US Constitution is a quite unclear when it comes to the specifics of managing an impeachment but looking at past examples there are general rules, based largely on the impeachment trial of President Andrew Johnson in 1868.
The only other president to face an impeachment trial was Bill Clinton in 1999. He too survived.
