My1sttoday: Democrats files impeachment article accusing Trump of inciting attack on Capitol Hill. The resolution was drafted following last Wednesday’s Capitol riot. Trump spoke to his supporters prior to the mob breaching the Capitol, and House Democrats are charging him with “willfully inciting violence against the government of the United States” in the impeachment document.
“He also willfully made statements that encouraged – and foreseeably resulted in – imminent lawless action at the Capitol,” Democrats charge in the resolution.
Speaker Pelosi has told Democrats they will move forward with an impeachment vote immediately if Pence and the Cabinet do not invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Trump from power.
Read the first draft of the resolution below.
The article, co-authored by Reps. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), Ted Lieu (Calif.) and Jamie Raskin (Md.), states that Trump engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors by “willfully inciting violence against the Government of the United States.”
