AOC, Mondaire Jones call for 2nd impeachment of President Trump after Capitol chaos
Some local lawmakers are calling for a second impeachment of President Donald Trump, saying that he incited the violence that led to the breach of the U.S. Capitol building on Wednesday.
One of those calling for impeachment is Rep. Mondaire Jones, who says he "could not have imagined a darker day for Democracy."
"Donald Trump has incited violence against the legislative branch of the United State Government, encouraging thousands of his supporters to storm the Capitol, and must be impeached again."
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted out the word, "Impeach" which has gained hundreds of thousands of likes.
Just after Trump supporters breached both the House and Senate chambers of the Capitol building, where a woman was fatally shot, Rep. Ilhan Omar, of Minnesota, said she was "drawing up articles of impeachment."
The president was impeached last year after calling on Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
