Rep. Ilhan Omar Drawing up Articles of Impeachment for Trump
WASHINGTON, D.C. (FOX 9) – Rep. Ilhan Omar says she is writing articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump after a large mob of his supporters breached the U.S. Capitol Wednesday.
In a tweet, Omar said Trump “should be impeached by the House of Representatives & removed from office by the United States Senate.”
“We can’t allow him to remain in office,” she added. “It’s a matter of preserving our Republic and we need to fulfill our oath.”
I am drawing up Articles of Impeachment.
Donald J. Trump should be impeached by the House of Representatives & removed from office by the United States Senate.
We can’t allow him to remain in office, it’s a matter of preserving our Republic and we need to fulfill our oath.

The rioters breached the Capitol after a rally led by President Trump earlier in the day Wednesday, where he disputed the outcome of the election and called for his supporters to march to the Capitol to protest Congress’s certification of the Presidential election results. Later Wednesday, he called for an end to the violence while calling the rioters “special” people.
The President’s term ends in 14 days. The President was impeached but not removed about one year ago.
