According to CBS, the 2020 State of the Union will be only the second time in history a president will be delivering it while the Senate is holding an impeachment trial. The first time happened in 1999 while President Clinton was in office. Clinton was ultimately acquitted on charges of obstruction of justice and perjury by the Senate.
The Senate is expected to hold the final verdict vote on the impeachment trial on Wednesday.
