On Jan. 6, 2020, Donald Trump had one of his infamous rallies in Washington. Trump continued to talk about election fraud and was calling on Congress to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s electoral votes and have them do a recount of the votes.
Trump encouraged his supporters to walk down to the Capitol and protests, but things had taken a turn for the worse as the Capitol was breached by Trump supporters. This action has allowed Congress to take action and make the article of impeachment toward Trump.
“I hope they are able to fully impeach Trump to have Trump lose all of his benefits that he is given after leaving office," CMA senior Wanya Avery said.
In the 55-45 vote, the Senate is not sure that they will be able to convict Trump with his actions toward the American people. There would need to be 67 votes to convict the former president.
The trial is set to start Feb. 9.
