대표. 데이비드 시실 린, D-R.I., who is one of the representatives taking the lead on an impeachment resolution targeting President Trump after the riot at the U.S. Capitol last week, argued Sunday that Congress isobligatedto impeach the president.

What we witnessed on Wednesday was an attack on our democracy, an insurrection against the government of the United States during the sacred ritual of the Electoral College,” Cicilline toldAmerica’s News HQ” 일요일에.

We cannot allow that kind of attack on our democracy, an attempted coup d’état to occur without consequence,” 그는 덧붙였다.

The deadly riot at the Capitol two days earlier was a failed attempt to stop Congress from certifying 조 바이든의 presidential victory and a major security breach that forced lawmakers to evacuate to secure locations.

Cicilline said on Sunday he plans to introduce the article of impeachment along with about 200 original cosponsors, adding that he expectsthat number to grow.

He acknowledged thatthere are some people who think, '오, 잘, the president’s leaving in 10 일, let’s just overlook it.’

We took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution and our democracy. That responsibility falls to us. We have no other choice,” Cicilline said.

Resignation would be preferable, invocation of the 25th Amendment would be preferable, but those two things aren’t going to happen so Congress is obligated under our oath of office to move forward and impeach this president.

House Speaker 낸시 펠로시 and Senate Democratic Leader 척 슈머 of New York pushed for Trump’s removal from office through the 25th Amendment, arguing it was too risky to keep Trump in power until Jan. 20, when Biden is scheduled to be inaugurated.

The article of impeachment is forincitement of insurrectionand states that Trump engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors bywillfully inciting violence against the government of the United States.

Trump’s actions warrant removal from office anddisqualificationto run ever again, the impeachment resolution states.

Speaking on일요일 아침 선물” 대표. 짐 조던, R- 오하이오, stressed thatimpeachment is for a sitting president and the president, if the Democrats pursue this, could not have a trial until after he left office so I think it’s got real constitutional problems, but most importantly, it’s not healthy for the nation.

Reacting to Jordan’s comments Cicilline said, “The impeachment by the House would happen before the president leaves office.

He pointed to a legal opinionthat says an impeachment removal, that is the trial, can happen subsequent to his departure.

Cicilline went on to note that there is precedent for thatso that’s not an issue.

Our country is in pain right now, miserable after the horrific and outrageous events of last Wednesday and my personal view, despite my absolute thinking the president’s behavior that day was reprehensible, is that aren’t we in pain enough? Don’t we need less brinksmanship and more leadership in our country to move to the peaceful transition of power on January 20th at noon?” Hill asked.

He went on to say that the impeachmentis not going to come to trial before the inauguration and, 따라서, you’re just disrupting Joe Biden’s transition.

Hill stressed that members of Congressneed to start building trust back across both sides of the aisle.
