The democratic majority in the House of Representatives formulated the text of President Donald Trump's impeachment article, media reports including CNN and the Reuters agency reported on Monday. It is due to be put to the vote this week, possibly as early as Wednesday. If voted, President Trump will be indicted – a second time in office.
Democrats accuse the president of "inciting a rebellion", which resulted in his supporters being stormed on the Capitol last Wednesday, where both houses of the US Congress (the House of Representatives and the Senate) gathered to approve the victory of Democrat Joe Biden in the presidential election on November 3, 2020. It is about repeating false claims that he won the elections and his January 6 speeches, as CNN writes before a crowd of his supporters broke into the Capitol.
Five people were killed as a result of the riots, including a Trump supporter shot by a police officer and one police officer.
The authors of the application also recalled a telephone conversation between the president and the Georgia secretary of state revealed in the media, in which he urged him to find enough votes to tip the result in that state in his favor.
The article stated, inter alia, that the Republican president's actions threatened the security of the United States and the integrity of the democratic system and disrupted the peaceful transfer of power.
