The Circus Examines Trump’s Second Impeachment and a Nation on Edge

‘Clear and Present Danger’ Airs Sunday, January 17 at 8 PM ET/PT on SHOWTIME®

THE CIRCUS: INSIDE THE GREATEST POLITICAL SHOW ON EARTH continues its sixth season this Sunday, January 17 at 8 p.m. ET/PT as a bipartisan vote makes Donald Trump the first president impeached twice, terrifying details reveal the scope of the deadly attack on the Capitol, and the military mobilizes to help secure the inauguration. 

THE CIRCUS hosts John Heilemann, Alex Wagner, Mark McKinnon and Jennifer Palmieri track the rapidly shifting developments of an extraordinary impeachment vote and walk the heavily fortified streets of the nation’s capital with lawmakers at the center of the investigation into the insurrection.

  • Lawyers George Conway and Neal Katyal on the case for Trump’s impeachment.
  • Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), one of the newly named impeachment managers, on the upcoming trial in the Senate.
  • On-the-ground reporting from Texas, where Trump holds his first public event since the attack on the Capitol.
  • Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) on the investigation into the Capitol Police and whether members of Congress may have helped the attackers.
