Following the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, there’s a growing movement within the Republican party to divorce themselves from President Donald Trump and his brand of politics.

Republican Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska said he’d consider impeachment. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and Education Secretary Betsy Devos resigned over the president’s stoking of mob violence.

However, after the Capitol was under siege on Wednesday, a half dozen Senators and more than 100 House Republicans still stood by Trump’s challenge of the election results. So where might the GOP go from here?
