President Donald Trump won impeachment acquittal Wednesday in the U.S. Senate, bringing to a close only the third presidential  trial in American history with votes that split the country, tested civic norms and fed the tumultuous 2020 race for the White House.  

The outcome Wednesday followed months of remarkable impeachment proceedings, from Speaker Nancy Pelosi's House to Mitch McConnell's Senate, reflecting the nation's unrelenting partisan divide three years into the Trump presidency.

Adam Schiff, the House lead impeachment manager and one of the central figures of the impeachment proceedings, joins Larry for an interview.
