Pres. Trump impeached for the second time
Donald Trump became the first U.S. President to be impeached twice. Ten Republicans sided with the Democrats as a senior Trump adviser says “it all came crashing down” because the President “could never tell the truth.” Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff was the lead impeachment manager during the 2019 impeachment trial. He tells Anderson Cooper he would have liked to see more than ten Republicans recognize the severity of what Trump did. Plus, sources tell CNN Trump is in “self-pity mode” as he contemplates using pardons to change the subject away from impeachment and the Capitol Hill riots. Legendary journalist Carl Bernstein joins AC360 to discuss Trump’s final days in the White House.
