Title: Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to impeach President Donald Trump for inciting an insurrection against the United States government.

Highlights:

 

  • Alleges that the president repeatedly issued false statements asserting that the 2020 presidential election results were the product of widespread fraud and should not be accepted by the American people or certified by state or federal officials (Article I).

  • Alleges that while the president addressed a crowd on January 6, 2021, he reiterated false claims of his campaign winning the presidential election and encouraged lawless action at the United States Capitol, thereby inciting members of the crowd to interfere with Congress’ constitutional duty to certify 2020 election results (Article I).

  • Alleges that the president encouraged breaching and vandalizing the Capitol, injuring and killing law enforcement personnel, members of Congress, the Vice President, and congressional personnel, and engaging in other violent, deadly, destructive, and seditious acts (Article I).

  • Alleges that, in a phone call on January 2, 2021, the president urged the Georgia Secretary of State to “find” enough votes to overturn the Georgia presidential election results and threatened the secretary if he failed to do so (Article I).

  • Alleges that the president endangered US security and its government institutions, threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transfer of power, and endangered a coequal branch of government (Article 1).

NOTE: THIS LEGISLATION NEEDED A TWO-THIRDS MAJORITY VOTE TO PASS
