Turning point: America inaugurates a new president and vice president this Wednesday

-- Front Page Talking Points Archive


This week's word in the news: INCITEMENT

DEFINITION:
The encouragement of another person to commit a crime.


FOUND IN THE NEWS:
Sources told ABC News that Trump watched the impeachment proceedings on television and grew angry as he witnessed former supporters, including House GOP leaders Liz Cheney and Kevin McCarthy, support the charge of “incitement of insurrection” or blame the president directly for the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
