H.Res. 24: Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.


About the resolution

The House impeached President Trump for the second time, charging him with incitement of insurrection. The impeachment resolution accused the President of inciting the violent riot that occurred on January 6 last Wednesday, when his supporters invaded the United States Capitol injuring and killing Capitol Police and endangering the safety of members of Congress. It cites statements from President Trump to the rioters such as “if you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country anymore,” as well as persistent lies that he won the 2020 Presidential election. Read about the final version of the impeachment resolution in the House Judiciary committee report.

H.Res. 24 is a simple resolution in the United States Congress.

A simple resolution is used for matters that affect just one chamber of Congress, often to change the rules of the chamber to set the manner of debate for a related bill. It must be agreed to in the chamber in which it was introduced. It is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law.

Resolutions numbers restart every two years. That means there are other resolutions with the number H.Res. 24. This is the one from the 117th Congress.
