A look at what we have learned so far from the public hearings of the January 6 Committee. Diane talks to Ryan Goodman, professor at New York University's School of Law. He explains what is next in the investigation, including whether we might see criminal charges against former President Donald Trump.
After a week of bitter partisan bickering, the House Judiciary Committee approved two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Friday, accusing him of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
The full House is likely to vote next week, setting up a trial in the Senate in January.
Diane’s guest, Kimberly Wehle, is a law professor at the University of Baltimore and author of the recent book, “How to Read the Constitution—and Why.” She analyzes the charges against the president, and explains why the biggest loser from this process might be the U.S. Constitution.
