Members of the House Judiciary Committee announced articles of impeachment of President Donald Trump.
The announcement comes after Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a statement that the president should be “immediately” removed from office, either by the 25th Amendment or by articles of impeachment.
Representatives David Cicilline (R-RI), Ted Lieu (R-CA) and Jamie Raskin (D-MD) wrote the articles, according to two people familiar with the matter.
Cicillin and Rep Ilhan Omar (D-MN) then tweeted the articles. “[S]o proud that everyone is co-leading this effort with us ”, Omar wrote. “We must act quickly to remove this president from office.”
Members of the House committee began writing the articles Wednesday night after a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol and a woman died from a gunshot wound inflicted during the chaos.
