There is one prior case in the U.S. of the trial occurring after the person left office. A cabinet secretary during the Grant Administration resigned just prior to the House voting on impeachment. There were also two judges who resigned between the impeachment resolution and the trial. In addition, around the time of the framing, there was an impeachment trial in the U.K. for a former colonial governor. Because the potential penalties include disqualification from holding office again, impeachment does not become moot when the person leaves office.
As far as Vice-President Harris presiding, impeachment trials are normally presided over by the presiding officer of the Senate (either the Vice-President or the President Pro Tempore of the Senate). There is an exception for the trial of the president which is presided over by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. It is unclear if that clause applies to a former President.
It appears that President Trump -- as his history -- is declining to pay Rudy for past services. There is also apparently some fear that Rudy was intending to present a justification defense (that the election was allegedly stolen). Since most Republican Senators know that the election was not stolen, such a defense would increase the likelihood that Trump would be convicted.
Rudy will not be tried for treason because the legal definition of treason is very narrow (involving supporting a foreign adversary who is at war with the U.S.) but there are other charges that may be coming.25 AnswersElections2 days ago

He phoned a Republican senator to convince him to commit insurrection and phoned the wrong senator by mistake. Then that senator reported him to the media to get a kick out of Giuliani and laugh at him. Not to mention his booking of a Trump rally at a place that wasn't the four seasons but a poverty stricken garden place next to a porno book store and cemetery with him standing next to a convicted paedophile who wasnt even from the state.5 AnswersPolitics2 days ago

I'm personally a democrat, but I am absolutely against AOC and the other younger democrats who say "cancel all student debt". I think it is completely unfair to use public tax payer money to eliminate private individual debt. I also don't think it is fair for all the parents and kids who worked multiple jobs to pay for college to see kids just have college loans canceled for free.
