The Case for Impeaching Trump (A Second Time)

The United States Congress is set to consider the second impeachment of President Trump following the attacks on the U.S. Capitol that he and his supporters instigated during their rally at the White House on Wednesday, January 6th.

CNN laid out the single resolution that the House of Representatives would vote on for this historic event.

House Democrats are formally unveiling their resolution to impeach President Donald Trump on Monday, charging him with “incitement of insurrection” for his role in last week’s riots at the US Capitol.The single impeachment article, which will be introduced at 11 a.m. ET when the House gavels in Monday, points to Trump’s repeated false claims that he won the election and his speech to the crowd on January 6 before pro-Trump rioters breached the Capitol. It also cited Trump’s call with the Georgia Republican secretary of state where the President urged him to “find” enough votes for Trump to win the state.

Over at Reason they have released a video laying out the case for impeaching President Trump a second time and only days from when he is scheduled to leave office.

“What impeachment does is it puts an additional black mark on a presidency—an additional mark of disgrace and shame,” he explains. “It’s a signal to the presidents that are going to follow that this black mark can be put on you even at the last moments of your presidency if your behavior has been egregious enough. Making Donald Trump the only president to have been impeached twice would really underscore that point.”
