Rep. Steny Hoyer is calling for President Donald Trump to be impeached a second time, a week after he encouraged a mob of loyalists to "fight like hell" against election results just before they stormed the U.S. Capitol in a deadly siege. (Jan. 13)
"There are consequences to actions, and the actions of the president of the United States demand urgent, clear action by the Congress of the United States," said Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the Democratic majority leader.
At least five Republican lawmakers, including third-ranking House GOP leader Liz Cheney of Wyoming, were unswayed by the president's logic. The Republicans announced they would vote to impeach Trump, cleaving the Republican leadership, and the party itself.
Cheney's father was the vice president under President George W. Bush and a Republican leader in the House. "She knows of what she speaks," said Rep. Hoyer. Anger is mounting among some of President Trump's supporters as he continues to contest the results of the election, which Joe Biden has decisively won. Trump invited two of the top Republicans in Michigan's legislature to the White House in an apparent attempt to pressure them to appoint loyalists as electors for the state, which Biden won by 157,000 votes. Even Tucker Carlson, one of Trump's biggest boosters, seems fed up with the complete lack of evidence to back claims of voter fraud. "I don't think—when the President of the United States and some of my Republican colleagues are trying to burn the house down around us—that we want to set a new fire," says Rep. Adam Schiff on excluding GOP House members who went along with Trump plot to overturn the election. Aired on 12/11/2020. "He's a disgrace to his uniform," says Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, discussing Gen. Michael Flynn floating the idea that Trump invoke martial law to overturn the election. Aired on 12/21/2020.
