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:
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.”
