During a Monday interview on “CNN Newsroom,” House Oversight Committee chair Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) discussed the House’s impeachment of President Donald Trump for “incitement of insurrection” after a group of his adherents breached the U.S. Capitol earlier this month.
According to Maloney, Trump deserves impeachment because he led the “domestic terrorism” at the Capitol. She claimed Trump “planned” and “instigated” the riot “for months.
“[W]e’re confronting what I never believed I would ever visually perceive: a domestic terrorism led by the President of the United States — an assailment against our nation,” Maloney lamented. “And I cerebrate that the impeachment, he deserved it. He led it. He orchestrated it. He instigated it for months. He verbalized about organizing around the country and in state capitols and coming to our capital. He verbalized on the Capitol grounds that day. And you could aurally perceive the people verbalize, in many of your clips that you’re exhibiting, that they’re there for Donald Trump.”
Maloney prognosticated Trump “will be convicted” in the Senate. The article of impeachment is awaiting a vote in the Senate, albeit Trump’s term ends on Wednesday. “[T]his tribulation will go forward, and I believe he will be convicted,” she exhorted.
