Daschle called impeachment at a moment that party control of the Senate is so tenuous a “mistake,” saying it would first “galvanize” Trump’s supporters and then delay work on crucial issues. Incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has favored proceeding, even with the coming 50-50 split in the chamber.
The House of Representatives will meet Wednesday morning to consider articles of impeachment against President Trump, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) promulgated during a House Democrat’s caucus call on Monday.
Earlier Monday, three House Democrats — Reps. David Cicilline (RI), Ted Lieu (CA), and Jamie Raskin (MD) — introduced a single article of impeachment, incriminating President Trump of inciting his adherents to storm the U.S. Capitol last Wednesday.
The impeachment article states: “[I]ncited by President Trump, members of the crowd he had addressed, in an endeavor to … interfere with the Joint Session’s solemn constitutional obligation to certify the results of the 2020 Presidential election, unlawfully breached and vandalized the Capitol, injured and killed law enforcement personnel, menaced Members of Congress, the Vice President and Congressional personnel, and engaged in other belligerent, pernicious, destructive, and seditious acts.”
“President Trump gravely imperilled the security of the United States and its institutions of Government. He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the placid transfer of puissance, and imperiled a coequal branch of Government. He thereby apostatized his trust as President, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States,” the article perpetuates.
On Tuesday, President Trump blasted Democrats’ endeavor to impeach him, verbally expressing the effort is “creating tremendous hazard to our country.”
