House Officially Introduces Articles of Impeachment For Donald Trump Following Capitol Riot

Democrats of Congress have formally introduced articles of impeachment for President Donald Trump, following the riots that broke out last week and sent many representatives into a lockdown situation.

The Democrats state in the papers filed that they are charging Trump with “incitement of insurrection”.

The full document, that is broken down on CNN, turns to the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which states that any person who has “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against” the United States be barred from holding office.

“This impeachment charge is meant to defend the integrity of the republic,” Rhode Island Democrat David Cicilline wrote in an op-ed for the New York Times. “Both Democratic and Republican members of Congress must attend to the duties of their oath. Failing to act would set an irresponsibly dangerous precedent for future presidents who are about to leave office.”

He continued: “Further, there can be no healing of the divisions in our country without justice for the man most responsible for this horrific insurrection. The president must be held accountable.”

However, House Republicans are wary of the move, stating that impeachment could cause Trump to increase his division in the country.

Trump was impeached last year by the House for abuse of power, however, the Senate acquitted him.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made the announcement over the weekend that the House would seek to impeach Trump unless the 25th Amendment was invoked, which would call on Vice President Mike Pence to remove Trump from office.

Biden said in a press conference that Trump not showing up “is one of the few things we agree on.”

President Donald Trump is planning one of his final appearances before leaving office.

Trump was recently banned across social media for inciting violence amongst his base, and attempted to log-in via various accounts before being suspended each time.

Vice President Mike Pence Tells Capitol Rioters 'You Did Not Win' - Watch Now

Vice President Mike Pence is denouncing the rioters’ violence after they stormed The Capitol on Wednesday (January 6) in Washington, DC.

Pence shared a message to the Trump supporters after he returned to Congress on Wednesday night following the riots at the Capitol building earlier in the day.

“You did not win. Violence never wins,” Pence said as he resumed the session. “Freedom wins. And this is still the people’s house. As we reconvene in this chamber, the world will again witness the resilience and strength of our democracy.”

“For even in the wake of unprecedented violence and vandalism at this Capitol, the elected representatives of the people of the United States have assembled again on the very same day to support and defend the Constitution of the United States…Let’s get back to work,” Pence concluded.

Pence‘s message against the Trump supporters that rioted the Capitol comes after the president turned on his VP for not using his powers to overturn the election in his favor.

Congress Will Finish Counting Electoral College Votes Tonight Amid Trump Supporters Riot

Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to her colleagues about finishing the counting of the electoral college votes, in spite of the riots that took precedence over the day.

The Speaker of the House shared the letter this afternoon (via ABC News) as members of Congress went to a safe place as rioters took over the U.S. Capitol.

Nancy called the acts of the rioters “a shameful assault was made on our democracy”, and added that it wouldn’t stop them from fulfilling their duties as representatives of the nation.

“To that end, in consultation with Leader Hoyer and Whip Clyburn and after calls to the Pentagon, the Justice Department and the Vice President, we have decided we should proceed tonight at the Capitol once it is cleared for use,” she wrote.

The letter continues, “We also knew that we would be a part of history in a positive way, today, despite ill-founded objections to the Electoral College vote. We now will be part of history, as such a shameful picture of our country was put out to the world, instigated at the highest level.”

“Members and staff should remain on the Capitol complex until they are notified by the United States Capitol Police. I look forward to seeing you later this evening, during this time of great sadness,” she concluded.

Nancy, Mike Pence, and more members of Congress were stopped in the middle of their count to ratify the election votes by the “Stop the Steal” riot, which was fueled by President Donald Trump.

After his video message to the rioters was taken down on social media, Trump also had his official Twitter account locked. Read more on the situation here…

Donald Trump Calls Out VP Mike Pence After He Issues Statement About Using His Powers To Overturn Election

Donald Trump is putting Mike Pence on blast following his comments regarding the coup that happened at the capital today (January 6) in Washington, D.C.

If you haven’t heard, many supporters of the Trump administration broke into the U.S. Capitol Building today, halting election proceedings.

Protestors were overheard shouting “stop the steal”, referring to the false claims that the election was stolen from Trump which he has perpetuated since the election was called in Joe Biden‘s favor.

Now, Trump is calling out his own vice president, as Pence has stated that he will not use his own executive powers to overturn the election.

“It is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not,” Pence wrote in a letter.

He added that “the concerns of millions of Americans about the integrity of this election” and says that he believes, “vesting the Vice President with unilateral authority to decide presidential contests would be entirely antithetical to” American government at its core.

Following his letter, Trump wrote a scathing tweet about Pence and his decision.

The Capitol has been on lockdown since the coup’s break in past police lines, which happened as Congress was tallying the votes.
