See the impeachment trial pictures the Senate didnt want on TV – CNN

Washington (CNN)Press access to the Senate chamber for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump has been severely restricted, and the only television coverage is through cameras controlled by the Senate itself.

That limits what the public can see of the trial, when the camera is focused only on the person speaking. Cameras can’t show how senators are reacting to arguments, what
Chief Justice John Roberts is doing as he presides over the trial and what the House managers and Trump lawyers are doing as the trial unfolds.

Sketch artist Bill Hennessy was in the Senate chamber Tuesday. Here’s what he saw:
