According to Fox News, managers of former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial filed their pre-trial brief, claiming the “evidence is overwhelming” that the former president incited an insurrection at the Capitol on January 6th with the intent of disrupting the peaceful transfer of power in government.
“In a grievous betrayal of his Oath of Office, President Trump incited a violent mob to attack the United States Capitol during the Joint Session, thus impeding Congress’s confirmation of Joseph R. Biden, Jr. as the winner of the presidential election,” the brief reads. “This is not a case where elections alone are a sufficient safeguard against future abuse; it is the electoral process itself that President Trump attacked and that must be protected from him and anyone else who would seek to mimic his behavior.”
