Release: The U.S. Senate Must Convict Former President Trump For Inciting Insurrection

“In yet another somber moment for our nation, the Arizona Democratic Party calls for the conviction of former President Trump by the United States Senate.

“The evidence presented is overwhelming and the facts are beyond damning. Trump is clearly responsible for inciting the violence and death at the U.S. Capitol. Let’s be clear about what happened – a sitting U.S. President and his allies used lies and propaganda to encourage their supporters to attack representative democracy in our country – all because they didn’t get their way. If we don’t come together and make clear that this will never be allowed to happen again, the violence and division we’ve seen will likely continue.

“The chilling truth is that there are simply far too many accomplices and enablers of the insurrection occupying the halls of Congress, among them Representatives Biggs, Gosar, Lesko, and Schweikert who should be removed from their committees and compelled to resign.

“Arizonans can rest easy with the knowledge that their Senators will dispassionately do what is best for the future of our country.”
