Most local television and newspaper sites will also have livestreams on their websites. Go to the TV or newspaper homesite and look for a link.

What to expect: According to House manager Adam Schiff, D-California, the final day of opening arguments will cover the second article of impeachment brought against Trump – obstruction of Congress.

Managers are expected to show how Trump’s refusal to turn over documents and his order that those in the White House who have been subpoenaed should refuse to testify, has hindered the impeachment investigation in the House.

The last day of the opening arguments for the House managers will also see a presentation that seeks to tie together all the evidence laid out by the managers during the past two days.
