Demands that President Donald Trump be fully held to account for inciting the fascist mob that rampaged through the U.S. Capitol Building proliferated Wednesday as all hell broke loose in Washington, D.C., with members of Congress and journalists forced to seek shelter as the lame-duck incumbent’s supporters shattered windows and clashed with law enforcement.
“Arrest the president,” tweeted New York Times
columnist Jamelle Bouie. “I’m not joking. He incited a riot to try to sack the Congress and install himself in office. Our laws mean nothing if he can continue to live a free man.”
Progressive activist Kai Newkirk echoed Bouie, declaring that “Trump must be impeached, removed from office immediately, and arrested.”
“Enough,” said Newkirk. “The Constitutionally-mandated course of our presidential election has been disrupted by a violent insurgency directly incited by a sitting president.”
He should be impeached and removed from office tomorrow.

The breach of the Capitol Building by Trump supporters came after the president delivered a characteristically deranged speech near the White House, falsely claiming that the election was stolen and vowing to “never concede.”It’s Going Down RetweetedRevolutionary Abolitionist Movement@RevAbolition·1hAntifascism was the first line of defense against far right, fascist scum.

Following the president’s remarks, his backers proceeded to march en masse to the Capitol and eventually stormed the building.

The mob of Trump supporters forced Congress to pause the process of officially certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory as the Capitol was locked down and lawmakers were ordered to seek shelter.
