Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser on Monday urged Americans to avoid Washington during President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on Jan. 20 and to participate virtually.

This comes as the mayor asked President Trump to declare a pre-emergency declaration for DC due to "unprecedented challenges" and the "domestic terror attack on the United States Capitol" and as coronavirus cases surge in the District.

House Democrats will file one article of impeachment against President Trump that charges the President with "incitement of insurrection," according to a copy of the article obtained by CNN.

The single impeachment article, which will be introduced at 11 a. m. ET when the House gavels in Monday, points to Trump’s repeated false claims that he won the election and his speech to the crowd on Jan. 6 before pro-Trump rioters breached the Capitol.

Some background: House Democrats are barreling toward impeaching Trump for the second time over his role in inciting last week's riots at the US Capitol.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told House Democrats on Sunday evening that the House would proceed with bringing an impeachment resolution to the floor this week unless Vice President Mike Pence moves to invoke the 25th Amendment with a majority of the Cabinet to remove Trump from power.

Pelosi's letter was the first time she explicitly said that the House would take up impeachment on the floor this week, though it was clear that House Democrats have rapidly coalesced around an impeachment resolution in the days following the riots at the Capitol where five people died, including a US Capitol Police officer.

In a matter of hours, articles of impeachment will be officially introduced against President Trump for inciting an insurrection at the Capitol last week.

House Democrats have outlined a rough outline of how this week could look like as representatives move to impeach President Trump for a second time.

Calls for new protests in Washington, DC, and states across the country have law enforcement bracing for more possible violence in the coming days after rioters stormed the US Capitol last week leaving five people dead, including a Capitol Police officer.

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has asked for additional security measures with ten days to go before Inauguration Day as Wednesday's riot has set off a shockwave of concern among federal, state and local officials for more possible bloodshed over the outcome of the 2020 election that ousted President Trump from office.
