Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Friday that the U.S. House of Representatives would move ahead and impeach President Donald J. Trump next week for inciting a mob to storm the Capitol on Wednesday.

Pelosi said the impeachment would be unnecessary if President Trump did not resign immediately. She appealed to Republicans to join the move and convict and remove Trump from power.

Pelosi invoke the resignation of Richard Nixon over the Watergate scandal when Republicans urged the president to resign to avoid being impeached, in her letter to House members. She said Trump should follow the same example and give up his seat, describing his actions as a “horrific assault on our democracy.”

“Today, following the president’s dangerous and seditious acts, Republicans in Congress need to follow that example and call on Trump to depart his office – immediately,” Pelosi wrote. “If the president does not leave office immediately and willingly, the Congress will proceed with our action.”

If impeached, President Trump would be the only American President to be impeached twice, following his first impeachment last year.
