'I want him out': Lisa Murkowski of Alaska becomes the first GOP senator to call for Trump's resignation in the wake of deadly Capitol insurrection
  • Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska became the first Republican member of Congress to urge President Donald Trump to resign from office over this week's Capitol insurrection.
  • "I want him to resign. I want him out. He has caused enough damage," Murkowski told the Anchorage Daily News in an interview published on Friday.
  • Trump is accused of inciting the rioters to breach the Capitol by lying for months that the presidential election was stolen and could even be overturned by Congress and the vice president.
  • Murkowski also suggested that she might leave the GOP. "If the Republican Party has become nothing more than the party of Trump, I sincerely question whether this is the party for me," she said.
"I don't think he's capable of doing a good thing," she added.
