Trump high crimes - incitement of insurrection

An article of impeachment against Trump charges him with incitement of insurrection. "Donald John Trump engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by inciting violence against the Government of the United States or his role in the takeover of the U.S. Capitol."

"Donald John Trump thus warrants impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States."
Children can identify the principle. A loser doesn´t declare himself the winner. A child knows it’s wrong for the loser to try to change the results by threatening those who keep score and enforce the rules.

That's what Trump tried to do to the top election official in Georgia. Trump lost Georgia by 11,779 votes and then brandished the threat of criminal prosecution. He claimed that Georgia’s ballots were corrupt even as he was trying to corrupt them.
Trump is responsible for the death of U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who died after suffering injuries in the siege at the Capitol. Sicknick, 42, was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher.
