As the Senate moves ahead with the likely acquittal of President Trump in the ongoing impeachment trial, Republicans are weighing an option to launch their own probe into the whistleblower. One America's Emily Finn takes a look at the remarks by some of the senators mulling an investigation.
As the Senate impeachment trial heads toward a final vote, Democrats urged the Senate to hold President Trump accountable for abusing his power. Susan Page, Washington bureau chief for USA Today, joins CBSN to discuss the trial.
On the floor of the U.S. Senate, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reads and displays the question which Chief Justice Roberts declined to read last week during the Impeachment Trial.
The US Senate has found President Trump not guilty of abuse of power and the obstruction of congress in his historic impeachment trial. Donald Trump had been charged with high crimes and misdemeanours by the members of the House of Representatives but, as expected, the Republican majority in the Senate cleared him, which means he'll fight for re-election in November.

Tonight's BBC News at Ten is presented by Sophie Raworth and hears from the BBC's North America editor Jon Sopel.
