After Trump's Mob Storms The Capitol, A Growing Number Of Politicians Are Calling For His Removal

Jan 7, 2021

On this edition of Your Call, we're discussing Donald Trump’s attempted coup as thousands of pro-Trump extremists violently breached the nation’s Capitol yesterday while Congress was in the process of certifying the election results.

Last night, after the riots, 147 Republicans still voted to challenge Joe Biden's victory. A growing number of politicians are now calling for Trump's removal. What questions do you have about the mob violence we saw yesterday?
