Toomey said it was good for the country for Trump to resign over the riot at the U.S. Capitol that left five people dead, including a police officer.
According to Toomey, resignation is the “best way forward, the best way to get this person in the rear view mirror for us.”
Toomey added that Trump committed an “impeachable offense” after he encouraged his supporters to storm the Capitol while lawmakers were affirming Joseph R. Biden’s win.
Senator Toomey, whose from Pennsylvania, was interviewed on CNN’s “State of Union” and NBC’s “Meet the Press”.
