Impeachment is a chance to 'shine the national spotlight on the moral rot within the GOP': Seth Meyers

The host of "Late Night with Seth Meyers" broke down the stakes of Donald Trump's second impeachment on the eve of his Senate trial.

"Former President Donald Trump's second impeachment trial begins on Tuesday and it's a chance not just to hold Trump accountable for his crimes but to shine the national spotlight on the moral rot within the GOP and the decay of our democratic institutions," the comedian said with an unhumorous look on his face.

The host warned Republican senators will undermine democracy again.

"Shame alone doesn't work on these people, if it did Ted Cruz would've shaved that beard months ago," he said.

"Also, it's insane that Cruz and [Josh] Hawley are supposed to be jurors in this trial, when a good argument can be made that they were accomplices," Meyers noted.
