The write-up charges Trump with inciting violence against the federal government of the unified States. It was voted ~ above in the house one week after a lot of Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol as lawmakers convened to check President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral university victory following a rally in i m sorry Trump encouraged the team to “fight like hell” and continued to falsely assert he winner the election. 5 people, including a Capitol police officer, died as a an outcome of the riot.

If the house passes the bill, it will certainly then relocate to the Senate, whereby a two-thirds majority, or 67 senators, need to vote favorably to convict Trump that the charge.
