Pro-Trump supporters storm the U.S. Capitol following a rally with President Donald Trump on Jan. 6 in Washington, DC.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she’ll introduce articles of impeachment this week against Republican President Donald Trump, for encouraging his supporters to conduct a “big” and “wild” protest at the US Capitol.

It grew into a riot, which ultimately resulted in five deaths.

The insurrection happened after Trump led thousands of supporters, who had gathered at a rally he held in Washington last week, to try to get Congress to overturn certified presidential election results from states. Congress went on to uphold the victory of Democratic President-elect Joe Biden, in its joint session.

In this week’s Capitol Notes conversation, Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of, what Wisconsin’s congressional delegation is saying about impeachment.

Marti was a reporter with WUWM from 1999 to 2021.
