Let’s Examine the Claim That Trump Incited ‘Insurrection’ at the Capitol
GOP Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah appears to be all in on the impeachment of Donald Trump, saying the former president incited an insurrection and must be held accountable. “I believe that what is being alleged and what we saw, which is incitement to insurrection, is an impeachable offense. If not, what is?” Romney told CNN’s Dana Bash on Sunday. Earlier this month, the Democrat-controlled House voted to impeach Trump for a second time, saying his Jan. 6 speech near the White House incited the rioters who entered the Capitol while a joint session of Congress was meeting to certify the Electoral College vote. Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” Romney made similar allegations that Trump incited the Capitol incursion.
