WASHINGTON (CBS News) –The House of Representatives has voted to impeach President Donald Trump for inciting a violent mob of his supporters to attack the U.S. Capitol last week, following hours of debate Wednesday. The approved resolution makes Mr. Trump the first president in American history to be impeached twice.

The resolution includes a single article of impeachment accusing the president — who has just days left in office — of “incitement of insurrection,” and says he “gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government.”

“We know that the president of the United State incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion against our common country,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said at the beginning of debate. “He must go. He is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love.”

Booker: It Is Constitutionally Dangerous Not to Hold Trump Accountable

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) said on Sunday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press” that President Donald Trump must be held accountable for inciting what he called “a siege” on the U.S. Capitol.

On President-elect Joe Biden’s agenda, Booker said, “I can’t think of a president in my lifetime that came to power with so many challenges. I think the American people have a right to expect that we can work on a lot of different fronts from an economic recession to a pandemic to national security threats, as well as holding a president accountable who persistently lied to the American people, whipped up far right-wing extremists and incited a riot, an assault, a siege on the United States Capitol.”

He continued, “I believe it is constitutionally dangerous not to proceed. We just had a president of the United States try to undermine the peaceful transition of power, try to challenge a fair and free election. Him and his agents from the moments before, from his son to his lawyer, whipping up a crowd to go attack the Capitol. I believe fundamentally the Senate has an obligation to act. I worry about folks who might want to try to make this into a political tit for tat, that they’re missing the larger historical picture here. There must be accountability for actions that are this serious and this much of a threat, not just to our Constitution but to the erosion of our nation.”
