President Donald Trump has already made history as only the third U.S. president to be impeached by the House of Representatives. He now hopes to make history again by becoming the first impeached president to win re-election.

The Senate impeachment trial of Trump got under way in earnest Tuesday with a high bar for conviction and removal from office. Two-thirds of the Senate, 67 of the 100 senators, would have to vote to convict Trump in order to force his removal.

That is a highly unlikely prospect given that Republicans hold a 53-to-47 seat majority in the chamber and there has been little indication of Republicans breaking with the president.

The Senate chapter in the impeachment drama has kicked into high gear just as the 2020 presidential campaign enters a critical phase with a crowded field of Democrats vying for the right to take on Trump in November.
