Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., gavels in the final vote of the impeachment of President Donald Trump, for his role in inciting an angry mob to storm the Congress last week, at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2021.


The U.S. House of Representatives voted Wednesday for a historic second impeachment of President Trump, approving a single article of "inciting violence against the government of the United States.” So what are the political and legal implications of this?

It’s fair to state that this impeachment took place with extraordinary speed and it’s testing the boundaries of the impeachment process itself, raising questions that have never been contemplated before.



Joining Idaho Matters to talk more in depth about this are University of Idaho Law Professor Shaakirah Sanders and Charles Hunt, political science professor at Boise State University.
