Monday House Democrats pushed forward a resolution, charging President Donald Trump with “inciting an insurrection” as part of their impeachment push.
The impeachment resolution cites Trump’s January 6 speech before rioters stormed the Capitol. For example, the Democrat lawmakers cite Trump’s statement that, “…we won this election, and we won it by a landslide.”
Moreover, the Democrat members find Trump’s comments that “if you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country anymore” statement to be troublesome.
“President Trump’s conduct on January 6, 2021, followed his prior efforts to subvert and obstruct the certification of the results of the 2020 Presidential election,” the resolution reads.
Additionally, the House Democrats point to Trump’s January 2 phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which Trump called for an audit of the election in the peach state, arguing he had won the state if it weren’t for massive election fraud.
“In all this, President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of Government,” the lawmakers write. “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.”
The House will vote later this week on whether to proceed with the articles and a trial, according to reports.
Trump was previously impeached by the U.S. House in December 2020 for Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress over his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The Senate later acquitted Trump on both charges.

Carter on Hannity: House Judiciary Committee will subpoena DOJ over Biden classified docs
Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”
“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.
Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
