The Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Democrat Nancy Pelosi explained President Donald Trump’s threat during his impeachment debate.
According to her, the American leader was fomenting armed insurrection and rebellion against the country. Pelosi called Trump a clear and present danger and a threat to liberty, self-government and the rule of law.
She also accused the head of the White House of lying about the election results and “sowing doubt about democracy.”
Because of this, Trump should go, the lower house representative said. “The president should be impeached. I believe the president should be found guilty by the Senate. [It’s] a constitutional remedy that ensures that the country will be saved from a man who has been so determined to destroy what we hold dear,” the Democrat pointed out.
The storming of the U.S. Capitol took place on Jan. 6 during a rally of supporters of the incumbent who did not recognize the results of the November vote that elected Democrat Joe Biden as president. The rallies led to clashes with police. Five people were killed and dozens detained.
Democrats accused the incumbent president of sedition and sent a resolution to Congress on his impeachment. The vote on the document in the House takes place on Wednesday, January 13. This will be the second attempt to remove Trump from office. The head of state himself considers his speech to supporters on January 6, after which the riots began, fully acceptable.
