I'm Stewart Macintosh with the BBC News. Hello.

On the eve of Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial in the US Senate, Democrats leading the prosecution say there's overwhelming evidence against him. Mr. Trump has been charged with inciting insurrection after his supporters stormed congress. Mr. Trump's lawyers have called for the case to be dismissed. Lebo Diseko has more details. They will begin with the debate and a vote on this issue of constitutionality, very similar to the vote we saw them have when the senators, jurors were sworn in. Five Republicans voted for the trial to go ahead. So, we're pretty sure that it will go ahead in the same vein. And then after that, from Wednesday, we think that each side will have 16 hours over the course of 2 days to make their case. And there is also an option for the House impeachment managers if they want to have a vote on whether or not to call witnesses.

President Hernandez has been named in court filings in New York on several occasions, including as a co-conspirator in his brother's trial on drug trafficking charges in 2019. In the past, President Hernandez has strenuously denied any link to drug cartels, saying the accusations against him are politically motivated. As part of the case against his brother, it was alleged he received campaign funds from the jail drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. US prosecutors said assistance has hardly been forthcoming from the Honduras government in the investigation into the president with records not supplied nor witnesses extradited as requested.
