Read the House article of impeachment against President Trump
President Trump is facing the possibility of a second impeachment after he incited a mob of supporters to storm the Capitol last week. Trump would be the first president in history to be impeached for a second time.
Reps. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) and Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) introduced their article of impeachment Monday morning. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said this weekend that the House would vote on impeachment if Vice President Mike Pence did not invoke the 25th Amendment.
It says, in part, the president “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, menaced Members of Congress and the Vice President, interfered with the Joint Session’s solemn constitutional duty to certify the election results, and engaged in violent, deadly, destructive and seditious acts.”
