Comey appeared on the “Today” show Tuesday where it was mentioned that the District of Columbia’s attorney general shared on Monday that he is looking into whether Trump can be charged for incitement of the U.S. Capitol riot.

“The president needs to be sanctioned for his behavior and held accountable,” Comey said. “I think it is important that he be impeached.”
