Opinion: Young should have voted to impeach

Mr. Trump incited the riot where American terrorists broke into the Capitol building, did thousands of dollars in damage, brought guns, pipe bombs and ties, beat some of the capital police, caused the death of five people and stole things. Now, thousands of National Guard troops and police, at a cost of millions of tax dollars, are needed to protect the Capitol building and federal legislators. There are threats to all 50 state capital cities. Trump has also pardoned some of the convicted criminals who were part of his administration or friends. After all of this, Rep. Don Young voted not to impeach. What kind of crime(s) would it take before he would vote to impeach? He is not doing the job he swore to do with his oath of office. He should resign or be recalled.
