Democrats on Wednesday began making the case for impeaching President Donald Trump for "incitement of insurrection" following the deadly riot at the capitol a week earlier.

Before officially beginning the impeachment debate, Congress first debated a rule to govern the debate. Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) led the debate on the rule from his perch as chair of the House Rules Committee.

"This was not a protest but an insurrection and this was incited by Donald Trump," McGovern charged.

"Domestic terrorists broke into the United States Capitol that day and it's a miracle more people didn't die," he continued.

"These were domestic terrorists, Mr. Speaker, and they were acting under the orders of Donald Trump," he said.
