How the GOP Is Battling Impeachment for Trump



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Allan Lichtman, Distinguished Professor of History at American University and author of numerous books including The Case for Impeachment which was published back in early 2017.

As President Donald Trump and some of the GOP hobnobs with world leaders in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum, his legal defense team together with entire GOP and Republican Senators are fighting Democrats to keep him in office.

The Senate impeachment trial, which officially began last week, has now commenced in earnest.

Critical to the effort to convict Trump for two articles of impeachment is the set of rules by which the Senate will conduct the trial. Democrats want to present evidence and interview witnesses.

Republicans want it all to go away as fast as possible.
