Political Rewind: Ga. Congressional Delegation Vote On Party Lines Despite Bipartisan Impeachment

Thursday on Political Rewind: Georgia’s members of the U.S. House voted along party lines on impeachment of President Donald Trump. The debate continues over the president’s role in inciting insurrection when he directed angry crowds of his supporters to march on the U.S. Capitol last week. Democrats accused trump of violating his oath to protect the country from its enemies, foreign or domestic. Many Republicans called the impeachment a political stunt that will further divide the country. Also: COVID-19 continue to spiral upward in Georgia. New cases are in unprecedented territory here, at some 9,000 per day. At the same time, public health officials are grappling with how to speed the delivery of the COVID vaccine to people across the state. Panelists: Dr. Andra Gillespie — Professor of Political Science and Director, James Weldon John Institute for the Study of Race and Difference, Emory University Dr. Amy Steigerwalt — Professor of Political Science, Georgia State University Eric Tanenblatt — Republican Insider and Global Chair of Public Policy, Dentons Kevin Riley — Editor, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
