Do Reports That Militia Members Planned to Storm the Capitol ‘Undermine’ the Case for Impeachment?

An article from PJ Media claims that “the Washington Post Admits Trump Did Not Incite the Capitol Riot” and that reports that some rioters planned their attack in advance “completely undermine[s] the entire case Democrats made for impeaching Trump.” As evidence, the article links to a recent Washington Post piece about the storming of the Capitol that reports there was some pre-planning of the Capitol riot.

The Washington Post article in question is titled “Self-styled militia members planned on storming the U.S. Capitol days in advance of Jan. 6 attack, court documents say.” The article outlines how some of those who stormed the Capitol had organized in order to carry out the attack on Congress, showing that “the riot was not an entirely impulsive outburst of violence but an event instigated or exploited by organized groups.”
