Congressional Response To U.S. Capitol Insurrection
House Democrats on Monday took the first step toward impeaching President Donald Trump for inciting the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Today, members are expected to vote on a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment and declare Trump unfit for office.
A few Republicans have joined the call for removing Trump from office, but most argue that it would be a pointless and divisive process. Mitch McConnell said a Senate trial could not be completed before Trump leaves office on January 20.
Coming up on All Sides with Ann Fisher, how Washington will respond to last week's assault on the U.S. Capitol.
