Democrats, 10 Republicans charge Trump with incitement of insurrection
In a letter to the House and Senate Sergeant-At-Arms, more than 30 Democrats are calling for an investigation into suspicious Capitol tours before the deadly insurrection. Aired on 01/13/2021.
Astonishing new evidence of a desperate President Donald Trump caught on tape trying to steal the election exposes the depth of his corruption and makes his Republican Capitol Hill allies complicit in his bid to thwart the will of voters.
In a fresh abuse of power, Trump tried to bully a top Georgia GOP official into finding votes to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's win in the state. The staggering telephone call, audio of which was obtained by CNN and first reported by The Washington Post, amounted to the most serious threat yet posed by his authoritarian instincts to American democracy.
Even before the latest outrage, this week already marked a watershed moment for Biden's coming presidency, a ruptured Republican Party and the integrity of the US political system
A GOP attempt, for example, to block Congress' certification of Biden's win based on lies and false conspiracy theories about fraud on Wednesday has no chance of succeeding because of the Democratic majority in the House and the lack of a majority to overturn the results in the Senate. But it will further convince millions of Trump voters that the election was rigged. Scores of GOP lawmakers plan to choose the vanquished President and his voters over the cherished principles of free elections in a fracturing that will have lasting consequences for the GOP and the nation.

Former senior FBI official Chuck Rosenberg believes there is no reason for the Trump administration to open a special counsel investigation into Hunter Biden and analyzes the motive behind Trump considering one. Aired on 12/16/2020.
