DETROIT – The United States Senate is preparing for the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.

The upcoming trial is supported by Democratic lawmakers who argue that the country cannot simply skip past the seditious attack on the nation’s Capitol on Jan. 6. Several Republican lawmakers say the proceedings are at odds with now-President Joe Biden’s articulated desire to bring the nation back together.

On Sunday, we discussed the impeachment trial with U.S. Senator from Michigan Debbie Stabenow.

We also heard from Washtenaw County’s new prosecutor Eli Savit, who has decided it will not be business as usual in the prosecutor’s office.
