House Judiciary Committee member Rep. David Cicilline wrote in the New York Times Monday morning explaining Why House Democrats Are Introducing an Article of Impeachment against President Trump. The House is scheduled to meet in a pro format session Monday morning at 11:00 a.m. Other related resolutions are also expected to be introduced.
"From Andrew Jackson to Richard Nixon, we have seen presidents abuse their power, but we had never witnessed an American president incite a violent mob on the citadel of our democracy in a desperate attempt to cling to power," Cicilline wrote. "We cannot let this go unanswered. With each day, Mr. Trump grows more and more desperate. We should not allow him to menace the security of our country for a second longer."
