WATCH: Rep. Mace says rushing to impeach Trump could divide country | Second Trump impeachment


Democrats are pursuing a quick impeachment a week after President Donald Trump gave a speech they say incited insurrection. On Jan. 6, while Congress was in the process of counting Electoral Votes and certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win, a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol, clashed with police, and forced lawmakers to pause their sessions and evacuate to safety.

Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., said Trump needs to be held accountable for the Capitol riot, but that rushing the process could further divide the country. She said every person, including members of Congress, need to be held accountable for inciting the riot.

“We need to recognize, number one, that our words have consequences. There is violence on both sides of the aisle. We’ve contributed to it. We need to take responsibility for our words and our actions,” Mace said.
