On January 25th, the House impeachment managers presented and read aloud the article of impeachment to the Senate. The House of Representatives voted to impeach Donald Trump for the second time on January 13th and the Senate trial is scheduled to start the week of February 8th. Notably, many of the representatives selected to serve as impeachment managers for the trial were leaders in drafting articles of impeachment, including Reps. Raskin and Cicilline, and Rep. Lieu—who, along with Reps. Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley, started drafting the articles of impeachment while sheltering in place during the Capitol attack incited by Trump.
On January 12th, the New York Times reported that Mitch McConnell agreed that Trump committed impeachable offenses. We need to hold McConnell’s feet to the fire to ensure Donald Trump’s treasonous actions are justly punished!
