HOUSE DEMOCRATS: “TRUMP IS DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR CAPITOL ATTACKS”


04/02/2021




İrem UZUN -TDO- House Democrats made their case to convict former president Donald Trump of inciting the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. In the brief, the House’s nine impeachment managers made an impassioned case that Trump was “singularly responsible” for the mayhem that day and that he is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors, the threshold for conviction laid out in the Constitution, primarily because he used the powers of his office to advance his own personal political interests at the expense of the nation.

Prior to the armed insurrection, thousands of Trump supporters gathered at a "Save America" rally near the White House and listened to Trump, who urged them to fight like hell because "they won [the election] by a landslide". Trump's "statements turned his wild rally on January 6 into a powder keg waiting to blow", the brief says. Impeachment managers plan to use Trump's own words and video footage of the riot to say that "the furious crowd" was "primed (and prepared) for violence if he lit a spark". They argue that although Trump is no longer in office, the Senate has to act because "a president must answer comprehensively for his conduct in office from his first day in office through his last".

Trump's legal team Bruce Castor Jr. and David Schoen deny that Trump engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the United States. They also reject the idea that Trump intended to interfere with the counting of electoral votes. On Trump's claims that the election was stolen from him, his lawyers say he "exercised his First Amendment right under the Constitution to express his belief that the election results were suspect."
