President Donald Trump is set to be impeached the second time. This time, “incitement of insurrection”.
The president will be charged with this crime according to House Democrats who will formally unveil their resolution to impeach him today, Monday, January 11.
The charge is over his role in last week’s riots at the US Capitol.
The single impeachment article also cited Trump’s call with the Georgia Republican secretary of state where the President urged him to “find” enough votes for Trump to win the state.
The resolution says:
“He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coequal branch of Government. He thereby betrayed his trust as President, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.”
According to CNN, the single impeachment article, will be introduced at 11 a.m. ET when the House gavels in Monday.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Parler, an alternative social media platform favoured by conservatives and pro-Trump supporters, have been booted out of the Google Play Store, Apple Play Store and other downloading sites following mounting criticism.
The site of the app is also no longer available in what suggested that it has been kicked off the internet amid pressure from the public and Amazon employees.
According to CNN, Google, Amazon and Apple removed the app from the platform on Sunday, January 10, following a whirlpool of the controversy generated by the alternative app.
Legit.ng also reported that Trump received backing from Germany after Twitter banned him from their platform.
According to German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, lawmakers should set the rules governing free speech and not private tech companies.
Her spokesperson, Steffen Seibert, who disclosed this said the chancellor sees the complete closing down of the account of an elected president as problematic.
