The impeachment articles did not limit the case against the former President.

 

As has historically been the case. It appears that the entirety of the Political response by the Republican Party is premised on manipulative propaganda aimed at their cult. Republican supporters are promoting describing the charges against the former President as being based on the comments made at the rally in front of the White House on January 6, 2021. This is crafted misinformation for the consumption of the followers that still remain loyal to their treasonous members.

"President Trump’s conduct on January 6, 2021 was consistent with his prior efforts to subvert and obstruct the certification of the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Those prior efforts include, but are not limited to, a phone call on January 2, 2021, in which President Trump urged Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to ‘‘find’’ enough votes to overturn the Georgia presidential election results and threatened Mr. Raffensperger if he failed to do so"
