Representative Ilhan Omar has said she’s drafting articles of impeachment for President Donald Trump.
Omar announced the news on Wednesday, just as the National Guard and the FBI were deployed in Washington, DC – after Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol.
Omar, a Democrat rep from Minnesota, tweeted: “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.”
Earlier in the day on Wednesday, senators met to certify Joe Biden’s 2020 election.
Although the action was a formality, some Republicans voted against affirming Biden’s election, claiming allegations of voter fraud.
