Democrats have raged against President Donald Trump after a mob of people stormed the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, and have accused the president of inciting the violent riot.
Just one week later, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed through an impeachment vote in the House, where House Democrats, along with 10 Republican lawmakers, impeached President Trump on Wednesday for the second time of his presidency… based on single article of impeachment — for “incitement of insurrection.”
“President Trump has proven he is a clear and present danger to our American democracy. He must be impeached and removed from office,” Pelosi declared.
However, as the FBI has arrested dozens of people involved in the violence, they are reportedly uncovering evidence that the violent invasion of the Capitol was well-planned in advance.
CNN reported on Thursday: Evidence uncovered so far, including weapons and tactics seen on surveillance video, suggests a level of planning that has led investigators to believe the attack on the US Capitol was not just a protest that spiraled out of control, a federal law enforcement official says.
Among the evidence the FBI is examining are indications that some participants at the Trump rally at the Ellipse, outside the White House, left the event early, perhaps to retrieve items to be used in the assault on the Capitol.
PLEASE TAKE OUR POLL BELOW – WE WANT YOUR OPINION! Since the impeachment was based on “incitement of insurrection”…. if the storming of the Capitol building was actually planned in advance, should Pelosi’s impeachment of Trump be declared null and void?
On January 6, President Trump said, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building, to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
I appreciate the response! My two main problems:1) Trump reiterated before, during, and after -numerous times- for the Jan 6 rally to be peaceful and for no violence to occur. Yet you guys seemed to gloss over like it was of no significance. 1/x pic.twitter.com/307IvXdRCd
