Donald J. Trump should be impeached by the House of Representatives & removed from office by the United States Senate.
We can’t allow him to remain in office, it’s a matter of preserving our Republic and we need to fulfill our oath.
Rest assured, this day will not end without us finishing the work Congress is supposed to carry out.— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) January 6, 2021
We will not let our Constitution be trampled on by a mob and threaten by a tyrant.
Democracy will prevail.
