Watch Flashpoint every Sunday at 10 a.m. on Local 4 News

DETROIT – On Sunday, there was a discussion on supporters of President Donald Trump storming the halls of Congress to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

Since then so much has happened including Democrats pushing to get the president swiftly impeached.

Lawmakers plan to formally introduce the proposal on Monday in the House, where articles of impeachment must originate. If Democrats decide to move forward, a vote could be possible by Wednesday — exactly one week before Democrat Joe Biden becomes president at noon on Jan. 20.

In addition to a roundtable discussion, Democratic US Sen. Gary Peters of Michigan made an appearance on the show Sunday and talked about becoming chair of the Homeland Security committee. He also weighed in on the current events.
