Following the news of impeachment managers transferring the article of impeachment to the Senate, radical “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib tweeted on Monday that failure to hold former President Trump accountable, via impeachment and conviction, for the January 6 Capitol protest would set a “dangerous precedent.”
House impeachment managers delivered the article of impeachment to the Senate on Monday evening, which charges the former president with “incitement of insurrection” for the Capitol protest that occurred as members of Congress gathered to certify the electoral votes on January 6. The formal trial is not expected to begin until the week of February 8.
Far-left members of the “Squad,” who have blamed Trump and a handful of GOP lawmakers for the chaos at the Capitol, called for holding them accountable as the trial draws closer.
“Nobody is above the law, no matter the person or the timing. Failure to hold those who would incite terror on others to overthrow an election process that has worked for over 230 yrs would set a dangerous precedent,” Tlaib remarked.
Fact check: Trump did not incite violence. He called for peaceful protest, but that means nothing to leftists like Tlaib who refuse accountability for openly inciting Black Lives Matter rioting and Antifa anarchy throughout 2020.
