House Democrats introduced an impeachment resolution against President Trump on Monday for incitement of an “insurrection,” just days after the Capitol riot, saying he warrants impeachment, trial and “removal from office.”
Democratic Reps. Ted Lieu, David Cicilline, Jamie Raskin and Jerrold Nadler introduced the article of impeachment, charging the president with violating his oath of office.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Monday that the House “will move forward with bringing impeachment legislation to the Floor.”
“The President’s threat to America is urgent, and so too will be our action,” Pelosi said.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, later, said the House would meet at 9 a.m. on Wednesday to consider the article of impeachment.
