House Democrats on Monday introduced a single article of impeachment against President Trump for inciting a mob of his supporters to violence to prevent certifying the election of President-elect Joe Biden.
Why it matters: With less than two weeks left in his presidency, Trump faces a second impeachment, catalyzed by a monthslong campaign to baselessly discredit the results of the 2020 election — which ultimately led to a lethal attack on the nation’s capital.
Will Republicans vote to impeach? Spoiler: of course not. But it seems like impeaching Trump is in the party’s best interest: You get control of your party back, and you prevent him from being able to run for President in 2024, opening the door to other Republican candidates.
