Waste Land

On Jan. 6, during the certification of the Presidential election, a mob stormed the Capitol building. Later, President Trump was accused of inciting the riot. On Jan. 13, the House of Representatives voted for his impeachment, while the transition of power to President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. continues.

The impeachment vote set the stage for the second Senate trial of Mr. Trump, which began on Tuesday, Feb. 9. He was acquitted on Saturday, Feb. 13, by a vote of 57 guilty to 43 not guilty, falling short of the 67 votes needed for a conviction.
