Cicilline Statement on Second Impeachment of President Trump

“Last week, in a desperate attempt to seize power and overturn the will of the American people, President Trump incited an insurrection at the United States Capitol. Hundreds of domestic terrorists stormed the citadel of our democracy in an attempt to stop the peaceful transfer of power from one administration to the next. They have failed. Today, a strong, bipartisan majority of the U.S. House took the first step towards holding the President accountable for leading this failed coup. Make no mistake, we have upheld our responsibility to protect the United States from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. Our republic is stronger today than it was one week ago.”
