US President Donald Trump said his speech was “totally appropriate” before the deadly Capitol riot last week, when he encouraged his supporters to march on Congress.
Mr Trump dismissed Democrats in Congress as “ridiculous” attempts to impeach him for inciting rebellion.
On 20 January, as President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in, he leaves office.
An article on impeachment is set to be voted on by the House of Representatives on Wednesday.
“I think it’s [the impeachment procedure] causing tremendous danger to our country and it’s causing tremendous anger. I want no violence,” said Mr Trump.
Mr Trump reiterated his unsubstantiated accusations of voter fraud during the presidential election on 3 November during his speech at a rally in Washington on 6 January, and encouraged his supporters to march on Congress.
“We’re going to walk down to the Capitol, and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women, and we’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them, because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong,” he told the crowd of several thousand supporters.
He said Mr Pence should have “the courage to do what he has to do”, claiming without foundation that Mr Pence had the constitutional power to overturn the votes which were being formally tallied in Congress that day.
“I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard,” Mr Trump said.
Dozens of people have since been detained in connection with last week’s violence, which left five people dead.
