North Coast Rep. Jared Huffman held a virtual town hall meeting yesterday to discuss the last week's Capitol riot, efforts to again impeach President Donald Trump and efforts to ensure a peaceful transfer of power next week.
Huffman said he received more than 200 questions from constituents in advance of the hour-long meeting. He didn't answer them all, but tackled most of the main issues before excusing himself to go vote on a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke proceedings under the 25 Amendment to remove Trump from office.
