Trial highlights: Democrats roll out case as senators fidget

WASHINGTON (AP) -- House prosecutors faced fidgeting senators as they rolled out their case against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, the trial's previous session having lasted a fatigue-inducing 13 hours.

Trump was busy himself, returning from an international business conference but finding time to send 120-plus tweets that included trial commentary and criticism.

At times many senators left their seats and headed to nearby cloak rooms, or stood in the back or openly yawned.

At one point, more than 10 senators' seats were empty.
