“I don’t think it’s very unifying to say oh, let’s just forget it and move on. That’s not how you unify,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi also said it’s the responsibility of Congress to hold Former President Donald Trump accountable for inciting rioters who attacked on the US Capitol.
Trump is awaiting his second impeachment trial — Pelosi said she’s discussing the timing with the impeachment managers she named on when the article of impeachment will be sent to the Senate.
