For the second time in 13 months, President Donald Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives. This time however, 10 Republicans joined in indicting their party's leader, voting alongside all the Democrats. That includes Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, R-Ohio, of the 16th District.

In a statement Gonzalez said, "The President of the United States helped organize and incite a mob that attacked the United State Congress in an attempt to prevent us from completing our solemn duties as prescribed by the Constitution."

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the House impeachment is University of Cincinnati Political Science Associate Professor David Niven, Ph.D.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
