Trump "fed" the Capitol mob lies. He was subsequently charged with "incitement to insurrection."
Trump is the first U.S. president to be impeached twice. Most recently he was charged with "incitement to insurrection." The House of Representatives accused President Trump of inciting violence with false claims of election fraud. The article of impeachment states that President Trump repeatedly falsely claimed that the presidential election results were deceitful and should not be accepted. The impeachment reports read: "The insurrection incited by the President also threatened the safety of the three most senior officials in the presidential line of succession: Vice President Mike Pence, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and President pro tempore of the Senate Senator Chuck Grassley."
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, in an address to the Senate on January 19, said, "The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people. And they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government, which they did not like."
