Tensions remain high here in Washington, D.C. A Capitol police officer died as a result of Wednesday’s attack by pro-Trump supporters. The fifth death caused by the riots. Thursday night, President Donald Trump released a video conceding that Joe Biden will be the next president. But Friday morning he tweeted that he won’t be attending the inauguration ceremony on January 20th – breaking a long-standing tradition. And the U.S. Congress is discussing another impeachment effort against Trump for inciting violence.
Joining the discussion:

- Adolfo Franco is an attorney and Republican strategist.
- Steve Chaggaris is a political analyst.
