The news is out: [WASHINGTON—House Democrats plan to introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump on Monday, according to two Democratic aides, as lawmakers intensified calls to remove the president from office after he encouraged a mob that later stormed the Capitol.
More than 150 House Democrats, well over half of the caucus, have signed on to articles of impeachment written by Reps. David Cicilline of Rhode Island, Ted Lieu of California and Jamie Raskin of Maryland that focus on the breach of the Capitol complex and accuse the president of inciting an insurrection.
“This conduct is so grave and this president presents such a clear and present danger to our democracy, I don’t think you can simply say let’s just wait it out” until Mr. Trump leaves office, said Mr. Cicilline in an interview. President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration is Jan. 20.]
Why wait until Monday?
