Nancy Pelosi and the U.S. House of Representatives has released its 2021 resolution to impeach President Donald Trump, charging him with “incitement of insurrection,” an article for which the House is expected to vote on this week.
The 2021 Articles of Impeachment say Trump was “reiterat[ing] false claims that ‘we won this election, and we won it by a landslide,'” and accuses him of “willfully [making] statements that, in context, encouraged – and foreseeably resulted in – lawless action at the Capitol.”
“In all this, President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of Government,” the resolution stated. “He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coequal branch of Government. He thereby betrayed his trust as President, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.”
