It was a momentous week in Washington: for the third time in America’s history – the House of Representatives voted to impeach a president.
Donald Trump will not be removed from office but that should not detract from the gravity of this moment and what it means for the future.
This week, Cordelia Lynch, Emily Purser Brown and Greg Milam talk through the highlights of this historic week, why it matters and what comes next.
Cordelia takes us to Capitol Hill, where she was reporting as the House debated and then voted on the articles of impeachment. She got the views of several of those voting, including New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Plus, Greg travelled to Michigan, where President Trump held his final rally of the year, complete with Christmas trees topped with Make America Great Again hats. He spoke to Trump’s loyal fans to get their views on all the developments in Washington.
