The U.S. Senate on Wednesday acquitted President Trump of impeachment charges, ending a trial that bitterly divided lawmakers and the public. Bay Area Rep. Zoe Lofgren was one of seven house Democrats enlisted to present the case against President Trump, memorably pulling out a pocket constitution to remind Senators of their responsibilities, and charging Trump with willfully breaking the law. Rep. Lofgren joins us to talk about the verdict, and what's next for Democrats and the nation.
