trump-insurgents-capitolMADISON - On day one of an impeachment trial of former President Trump, who is facing a single charge of "incitement of insurrection" for his role in the deadly January 6 assault on the Capitol, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler issued this statement:

“The impeachment trial in the Senate this week is a chance to hold Trump accountable for his reckless actions and give the American public a chance to heal. Over the course of his four years in office but especially during his last few weeks, Trump spread lies and misinformation, and incited a riot in an attempt to overturn the election results. We saw firsthand on January 6th how dangerous our congressional and Senators support of Trump helped incite a violent mob to assault the capitol, leaving five people dead.

“Senator Ron Johnson is among those responsible for what happened just a few weeks ago. Johnson and the entire Senate needs to convict Trump to send a message to all future presidents that his behavior is not acceptable and that the Constitution must be respected.”
