Donald Trump Impeached For Incitement Of Insurrection


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Jeet Heer about Donald Trump's second impeachment.

The House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to impeach President Donald Trump over his role in inciting the Capitol riot last week that led to at least 5 deaths. Trump makes history for becoming the first President ever to be impeached twice. House Democrats moved with lightning speed to introduce an article of impeachment, debate it, and vote on it.

What comes next as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell remains surprisingly undecided about whether to vote on convicting Trump? What does the impeachment mean for Trump and the future of the Republican Party?

Read his latest article entitled, “The Enablers of Insurrection Should Be Ostracized.”

Jeet Heer, a national-affairs correspondent at The Nation.
