Rep. Ilhan Omar says President Trump should be impeached, again

The Minnesota representative says she is drawing up articles of impeachment.

Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar says she will draw up the articles impeachment against President Donald Trump, saying he should be removed from office after the scenes in Washington D.C. Wednesday.

The 5th District representative is calling on the House to impeach Trump for a second time after he gave a speech before supporters outside the White House in which he encouraged them to walk on the U.S. Capitol as members of Congress voted to certify Joe Biden's election win.

Urging them to "show strength" and "fight much harder," a huge crowd then marched on the Capitol, clashed with police and broke through the barricades, before breaching the Capitol itself.

It sparked chaotic scenes within the Capitol, with supporters making their way through its halls and chambers.

In an effort to quell the chaos, Trump issued a statement calling for his supporters to be peaceful, before adding: "Go home, we love you, you are very special."

He also repeated his baseless claim that the election had been "stolen" from him, a claim that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell himself denounced as "conspiracy theories" earlier on Wednesday.

"I am drawing up Articles of Impeachment.Donald J. Trump should be impeached by the House of Representatives & removed from office by the United States Senate," Omar said.

"We can’t allow him to remain in office, it’s a matter of preserving our Republic and we need to fulfill our oath."

Omar's statement comes after the former political director of the Minnesota GOP, Andy Aplikowski, called on the president to resign following the shocking scenes.
