45 Republican senators vote on a motion to make impeaching a former president unconstitutional ahead of the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump.

The vote came minutes after US senators were sworn in as jurors in the trial, when Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul raised a point of order forcing the chamber to decide on the constitutionality of even holding a trial in the first place. The point of order ultimately failed, with 55 senators voting to kill it and 45 voting against.
