Impeachment: Senate acquits Trump — What's next?

President Trump's impeachment trial concluded on Wednesday with the expected vote of acquittal. The senators voted along party lines except when Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) voted to convict Trump on abuse of power. Civil rights attorney Robert Patillo, Tobin Smith of Transformity Research and Horace Cooper of the National Center for Public Policy Research join Scottie Nell Hughes to weigh in. Then conservative commentator Steve Malzberg joins the discussion. Plus, investigative journalist Ben Swann weighs in on President Trump's State of the Union address and the Democrats' likely next move after failing to remove President Trump from office. We also examine the role of "meme-able moments" in modern US politics and President Trump's response to the acquittal.
