What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an insurrection against the United States, incited by President Trump. This president must not hold office one day longer.

I hope that what happened on January 6 convinces anyone still on the fence that Trump & his odious accomplices must pay for their crimes. Fullest extent of the law.


There are only 14 days left, but that is enough time to act—not only to remove Trump from office but also to prevent him from running again. This is precisely the kind of “high crime and misdemeanor” that the impeachment clause was designed to address.
