Convicting Trump requires 67 Senate votes, including at least 17 Republican votes and the trial is set to last the weekend and may conclude at the beginning of next week, according to The Hill.
Videos and photos posted on Twitter on Jan. 24 showed banners that appeared to insult the former president were also reportedly flown close to the club. The banners were flown on Trump’s first weekend with private citizen status following departure from office, according to a second Hill report.
