It was also included in the article that Trump “repeatedly issued false statements asserting that the presidential election results were fraudulent and should not be accepted” and Trump “willfully made statements to the crowd that encouraged and foreseeably resulted in lawless action at the Capitol”, leading to the violence and loss of life.
“President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government, threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperilled a coequal branch of government.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, said on the House floor: “The president of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion against our common country.
“He must go. He is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love.”
Mr Trump, who is due to leave office on 20 January, following his election defeat last November to Democrat Joe Biden, will now face a trial in the Senate, where if convicted he could face being barred from ever holding office again.
In December 2019, House Democrats impeached President Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, but the Republican-controlled Senate voted not to convict him.
