WASHINGTON (AP) -- A little over a month ago, rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol as Congress was voting to affirm Joe Biden's election as the 46th president. On Saturday, the Senate is set to meet in a rare weekend session for closing arguments in Donald Trump's second impeachment trial.

And the evenly-divided Senate is poised to vote on whether the former president will be held accountable for inciting the Jan. 6 siege.

It seems unlikely that the 100-member Senate will be able to mount the two-thirds vote needed to convict Trump.

Acquittal could heavily influence not only Trump's political future but that of the senators sworn to deliver impartial justice as jurors.
