In North Alabama, leaders from local parties are reacting to the idea of a second impeachment.
If the House votes to impeach President Trump, he will be the first president to be impeached twice. WAAY 31 spoke with a member from both parties about the possibility of impeachment proceedings and the message they believe it's sending.
“I think the whole intent of this other than to just kind of kick him as he goes out the door is to say, ‘hey, you know, you could be a threat to us, we want to close that door permanently," said Tom Fredricks, Treasurer of Morgan County Republican Executive Committee.
“I think it’s, again, holding him accountable for his actions and his participation in what occurred this past week and everything leading up to this," said Lisa Handback, a member of Alabama Democratic State Executive Committee. "What happened on Wednesday was not random, it was not an accident, it was a culmination of years of rhetoric and complicity.”
Fredricks believes the Democratic Party is using the riots in the Capitol to their advantage.
“Any efforts after the fact that once he’s, once the transition of powers taken place, the really only viable justification is to prevent Trump from reoccurring in a Presidential run in 24. I think it scares the heck out of them," said Fredricks.
Handback also believes invoking the 25th amendment is a way to prevent President Trump from running again in the future.
“I do think that it’s important to a lot of people that not only he be removed from office now to be held accountable for what he has done, but to also prevent him from being in any position of power to do very similar things in the future," said Handback.
Both Handback and Fredricks don't think the Senate will vote to impeach President Trump.
