Politics Podcasts: The Meaning Of Democrats’ Impeachment Argument

On Thursday, House impeachment managers finished laying out their argument for why former President Donald Trump should be convicted by the Senate for inciting an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. While it appears unlikely that 17 Republicans will join Democrats in voting to convict Trump, the evidence presented could help shape the views of the public regarding what happened at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
