January 6, 2021 and two Impeachments December 18, 2019 and January 13, 2021
Impeachment - If a federal official commits a crime or otherwise acts improperly, the House of Representatives may impeach—formally charge—that official. If the official subsequently is convicted in a Senate impeachment trial, he is removed from office.
Donald J. Trump was impeached on December 18, 2019 [outside my A-to-Z timeline] on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Trial January 16-February 5, 2020. Acquitted.
Insurrection - an organized and usually violent act of revolt or rebellion against an established government or governing authority of a nation-state or other political entity by a group of its citizens or subjects.
On January 6, 2021, approximately 2000-2500 supporters of Donald J. Trump converged on the US Capitol. This action has variously been called an attack, a storming, an insurrection, a riot, an occupation, and a protest.
On January 13, 2021, Donald J. Trump was impeached on the charge of incitement of insurrection. Trial February 9-13, 2021. Acquitted.
