US senators have been accused of falling asleep, playing games and breaking other rules during President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. Jim Risch and Jim Inhofe are among members who have apparently nodded off during the lengthy hearings. Crossword puzzles, fidget spinners and at least one paper aeroplane have been spotted with senators. The trial has heard that Mr Trump’s alleged abuse of power threatens American democracy.
