Trump becomes only U.S. president to be impeached twice


The House of Representatives voted to impeach President Trump for the second time — a first in U.S. history. CBS News chief congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes and CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett joins CBSN's "Red & Blue" host Elaine Quijano to discuss when the Senate could vote on removal, and why it may still happen even after President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated.

President Trump is finding himself increasingly isolated and abandoned as some of his staunchest supporters have said they're done with him. More than a dozen White House officials have resigned, including cabinet secretaries Betsy Devos and Elaine Chao. He is also facing mounting calls for immediate removal from office, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi threatening to bring new impeachment charges if he doesn't resign "immediately." Trump could be the first ever president to be impeached twice.
President Trump might become the first commander in chief to be impeached twice. The House of Representatives is set to vote on an article of impeachment on Wednesday. Before that vote, the House on Tuesday will vote on a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment. CBS News chief congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes and White House correspondent Ben Tracy join CBSN's Elaine Quijano with the latest from Washington, D.C.
