Two Members of Congress Call for Impeachment of President Trump

WASHINGTON – A violent assault on American democracy today following a speech by President Donald J. Trump in Washington has led to calls for the President to be impeached.

In what many are calling an attack on the “most sacred icon of American democracy”, the peaceful transition of power, House Speaker Nancy Peloski says that the certification of Electoral College ballots will continue tonight as soon as the building is declared secure.

The moves to maintain faith in democracy are going to be vital for the United States moving forward.

Former President, Republican George W. Bush has condemned today’s riot stating, “This is how election results are disputed in a banana republic”.

There are growing numbers of leaders in the United States calling for action against Trump following today’s events.

Former President Obama says, “History will rightly remember today’s violence at the Capitol, incited by a sitting president…as a moment of great dishonor and shame for our nation. But we’d be kidding ourselves if we treated it as a total surprise.”

Calls for President Trump’s impeachment are coming from a wide range of Americans.

Governor of Illinois

Governor of Vermont

Senator Mitt Romney

Minnesota Congresswoman says, “We can’t allow him to remain in office, it’s a matter of preserving our Republic and we need to fulfill our oath.”

This issue is likely to develop over the coming days.

The President would normally be leaving office on January 21, 2021, as President Elect Joe Biden is sworn in.

During his speech to the “March to Save America”, President Trump lamented that the people at the rally were being held by by law enforcement. That is not to say the President wanted the rally attendees to storm the barricades.

However during his speech, President Trump said he would be joining a walk to the capital.

During today’s riot, a woman was shot and later died.

Even Twitter is turning it’s back on President Donald J. Trump. Twitter reports that three Tweets posted today from President Trump have been removed, and his account “will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked.”
