WASHINGTON DC — The Senate debated on a set of proposed rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump Tuesday.

Watch the ABC News Special Report on Tuesday's impeachment proceedings below:

The proposed rules would allow House impeachment managers and Trump's legal team 24 hours each over two days to present opening arguments in the case — a break from Clinton's impeachment trial, where 24 hours worth of arguments were presented over four days. The rules indicate McConnell and the Republicans are hoping to end impeachment proceedings quickly.
