On Wednesday evening, Democratic US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi considered that the indictment issued by the House of Representatives against the outgoing President Donald Trump to stand trial before the Senate for the second time, with the intention of impeaching him, proves that “no one is above the law.”
Pelosi said, upon signing the indictment in preparation for referring it to the Senate, that “the House of Representatives showed today, with bipartisan participation, that no one is above the law, not even the President of the United States,” repeating the warning that Trump poses a “clear and immediate danger” to the country.
For his part, outgoing US President Donald Trump called on his citizens to unite and renounce violence, in a plea he made on Wednesday evening, in which he did not mention the indictment that the House of Representatives had just issued against him to be tried before the Senate for a second time with the intention of impeaching him.
“I call on all Americans to overcome immediate feelings and unite together as one American people. Let’s choose to move forward united for the good of our families,” Trump said in a video message.
Distancing himself again from his supporters who stormed the Capitol last week, he said, “There is no justification for violence at all. No excuses and no exceptions: America is a state of law,” stressing that “those who participated in the attacks last week will be brought to justice.”
