House Debates 2nd Impeachment Of President Trump


Debate is underway in the House on the impeachment of President Trump.

Massachusetts Democrat Jim McGovern opened the debate and accused the President of inciting the deadly mob violence at the Capitol last week. He said the impeachment debate is occurring in an "actual crime scene." McGovern called the Capitol attack an insurrection and an act of domestic terrorism. House Democrats have the necessary votes and Trump is set to become the first President in American history to be impeached twice.

Several Republicans are expected to vote in support of impeaching the President. Oklahoma Republican Tom Cole said impeachment would further divide the American people. He called for a time of healing. Cole argued that impeachment is being rushed without due process for the President. He accused House Democrats of "settling scores" with Trump, who will be out of office in a week. President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated on January 20th.
