A Sketch Artist's View of the Impeachment Trial

Because no photos or videos are allowed to be taken in the Senate chamber, the public’s only view of the Senate floor is a feed provided to C-Span from cameras that are operated by government employees.

That is, unless someone seated in the gallery can draw.

Art Lien is a courtroom sketch artist who has primarily covered the Supreme Court — another body that does not allow cameras — since 1976. But for the extent of the impeachment trial of President Trump, Mr. Lien will be walking across the street to the Capitol to capture moments that we might not see on television.
