Harry Reid: Democrats Have No Choice But To Seek Impeachment

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says President Donald Trump's behavior gave House Democrats no choice but to move toward impeaching him a second time after the deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol.

Reid said told The Associated Press on Monday that Trump's actions inciting a mob that ransacked the Capitol is "certainly impeachable" and "about as close to criminal as anything."

Reid worked as a U.S. Capitol Police officer while putting himself through law school and says it was scary to watch the assault and hard to accept.
