US House Democrats on Monday introduced a resolution containing a single article of impeachment against President Donald Trump, charging him with “incitement of insurrection” for his role in the attack on the US Capitol last week.

The resolution noted that Trump addressed a rally shortly before his supporters mounted the attack and says he made statements that “encouraged and foreseeably resulted in” the lawless actions at the Capitol.
