House Democrats have officially released a single article of impeachment against President Donald Trump, allegedly charging him for “insurrection” for inciting the riot at the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
The riot came just after President Trump finished speaking at a rally to protest against voter fraud.
The article itself states that during the rally, Trump “willfully made statements that encouraged — and foreseeably resulted in — imminent lawless action at the Capitol. Incited by President Trump, a mob unlawfully breached the Capitol, injured law enforcement personnel, interfered with the Joint Session’s solemn constitutional duty to certify the election results, and engaged in violent, deadly, destructive, and seditious acts.”
“President Trump’s conduct on January 6, 2021 was consistent with his prior efforts to subvert and obstruct the certification of the results of the 2020 presidential election,” the article of impeachment stated. “Those prior efforts include, but are not limited to, a phone call on January 2, 2021, in which President Trump urged Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to ‘find’ enough votes to overturn the Georgia presidential election results and threatened Mr. Raffensperger if he failed to do so.”
“In all of this, President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government,” the document stated. “He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coordinate branch of government. He thereby betrayed his trust as President, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.”
“Werefore President Trump, by such conduct, has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security, democracy, and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office, and has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self-governance and the rule of law,” the article of impeachment concluded. “President Trump thus warrants impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.”
If this effort by House Democrats is successful, President Trump will become the first commander-in-chief in United States history to be impeached twice.
We all knew from the get-go that Trump’s time in office would be historic. I don’t think this is what we all had in mind though.
Let’s be crystal clear. The reason Democrats are so eager to do this is because if they succeed, President Trump will not be able to run for political office again, including potentially making a bid for the White House in 2024.
The left is so terrified of him, they would do anything to be done with him in the political arena for good.
