In their words: What GOP members are saying during impeachment debate

House Republicans made little effort to defend the actions of President Donald Trump during a procedural debate Wednesday morning over impeaching the president following the violent riot at the Capitol last week.

Watch the video for what some GOP members chose to focus their floor time discussing.

The House, under Democratic control , is all but certain to impeach Trump — for a second time — on Wednesday afternoon.

The House previously impeached Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, but the Senate acquitted him of both charges.
