Democrats: Trump Aimed ‘Loaded Cannon’ at Capitol

Breaking Now: The House Democrats have filed their “impeachment brief” with the Senate outlining their case against former President Donald Trump in the trial that gets underway next week.

Among the statements made by the Democrats in the brief are:

  • Trump “summoned a mob to Washington, exhorted them into a frenzy, and aimed them like a loaded cannon down Pennsylvania Avenue.”
  • “If provoking an insurrectionary riot against a Joint Session of Congress after losing an election is not an impeachable offense, it is hard to imagine what would be.”
  • “There is no ‘January Exception’ to impeachment or any other provision of the Constitution. A president must answer comprehensively for his conduct in office from his first day in office through his last.”
  • “The Framers themselves would not have hesitated to convict on these facts.”

Besides convicting him of Incitement of Insurrection, the House Democrats want the Senate to bar Trump from ever holding office again. They wrote: “This is not a case where elections alone are a sufficient safeguard against future abuse; it is the electoral process itself that President Trump attacked and that must be protected from him and anyone else who would seek to mimic his behavior. Indeed, it is difficult to imagine a case that more clearly evokes the reasons the Framers wrote a disqualification power into the Constitution.”

This is a breaking news story and will be updated as warranted…
