Read the draft of the Democrats' new article of impeachment against Trump

Democrats in Congress plan to move forward with impeachment proceedings against President Trump on Monday.

If agreed to by a majority in the House of Representatives, Trump would become the first president in U.S. history to be impeached twice. The Senate could then vote to remove him from office before Jan. 20, the final day of his term.

A draft of the article, which will be introduced in the House by Reps. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, Ted Lieu of California and David Cicilline of Rhode Island, shows that Trump will be charged with “incitement of insurrection” for his role in the Jan. 6 siege on the U.S. Capitol by supporters he called to Washington to protest what he claimed was a “stolen election.”

Here is a draft of the article that will be presented.
