Trump warns impeachment is ‘tremendous danger’ to U.S., doesn’t take responsibility for Capitol riot
- President Donald Trump doubled down on the incendiary rhetoric that incited the Capitol riot, warning that it was dangerous to the United States for him to be impeached.
- Trump also claimed his inflammatory comments at a rally shortly before the outbreak of violence in the halls of Congress, which lead to at least five deaths, were not harmful.
- The riot was fueled by anger over the election of Joe Biden as president. Trump is expected to be impeached this week by the House.
