Pelosi Ultimatums Trump

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday that the House would move to impeach President Trump over his role in inciting a violent attack on the Capitol if he did not resign “immediately,” (New York Times)

In a letter to members of the House, the speaker invoked the resignation of Richard M. Nixon amid the Watergate scandal, when Republicans prevailed upon the president to resign and avoid the ignominy of an impeachment, calling Mr. Trump’s actions a “horrific assault on our democracy.”

“Today, following the president’s dangerous and seditious acts, Republicans in Congress need to follow that example and call on Trump to depart his office — immediately,” she wrote. “If the president does not leave office imminently and willingly, the Congress will proceed with our action.”
