Emotional moments from the House debate on Trump's second impeachment


Here are some of the most impassioned moments made on the House floor on Jan. 13 as members of Congress attempted to impeach President Trump for a second time.

Donald Trump's second impeachment moves to the Senate the week of January 25th. Lower house lawmakers delivered the impeachment document to the Senate. The trial is delayed to allow President Biden time to get his administration up and running. CGTN's Roee Ruttenberg and Lincoln Mitchell, an Adjunct Associate Professor of Political Science at Columbia University discuss what to expect in the next few weeks.
"Usually when the Senate tries to ram something through that quickly, it's a conservative Supreme Court justice." Late night hosts marveled at the possibility of President Donald Trump's second impeachment following the deadly Capitol riot.
Donald Trump is leaving office next week as the only U.S president to be impeached twice.
The House of Representatives charged him with inciting an insurrection.
Trump is accused of encouraging supporters to storm the Capitol last week to try and overturn Joe Biden's election win.
10 Republicans broke ranks to vote for impeachment, revealing cracks in a party that has largely stood by the President for the past four years.
So what happens now?
