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.
