Seven Senate Republicans join Democrats in unsuccessful vote to convict former President Trump

Despite failing to reach a two-thirds majority, an unprecedented number of Senate Republicans joined Democrats in voting 57 to 43 to convict former President Trump at his second impeachment trial on Saturday. Mr. Trump was ultimately acquitted of a charge of “incitement of insurrection.” CBS News political analyst Leslie Sanchez and former senior adviser to the Biden transition team Ashley Allison join CBSN to discuss the future of the Republican party and whether or not President Biden can rally bipartisan support for his $1.9 trillion Coronavirus relief package.
