The United States needs a reckoning for the dark deal the GOP has made with President Donald Trump in edging us so dangerously close to fascism
Donald Trump became the first US president to be impeached twice with the House of Representatives passing the motion by a 232-197 margin. The motion charges the president with “incitement of insurrection” over his role in the Capitol riot last week
The impeachment motion will be the second presented in the four years since Trump has been in office. If successful, it can lead him to being barred from elections in the future
A day after the riots in the US Capitol building, the death toll has risen to 5, several high-ranking officials in Trump’s administration have resigned.

Trump has been strongly condemned for his role in instigating the rioters, with his unproven claims of a “stolen” election and his refusal to concede. Questions have also been raised about the lax treatment of the rioters and the space afforded to them
