The US House of Representatives began its session on Wednesday in which it foresees vote for the new impeachment against President Donald Trump after the violent assault on the Capitol last Wednesday of a mob of his followers, in which five people died. Democrats, with a majority in the Lower House, will seek this Wednesday accuse the president of the charge of “incitement to insurrection.”
The vote is expected to go ahead with the support of the Democratic caucus, and at least four Republican legislators have announced that they will join the initiative: Adam Kizinger, Congressman from Illinois; Liz Cheney, Congressman from Wyoming; John Katko, from New York; and Fred Upton, by Michigan.
The process initiated in the Lower House promises force the Senate to impeach Trump that will unfold when the president-elect, the Democrat Joe Biden, is already in power, and therefore will not have as its main objective the removal of the president but his possible disqualification from holding future political office.
On your side, Trump broke his silence this Tuesday after the assault on the Capitol by qualifying the new impeachment as something “absolutely ridiculous” and “a continuation of the biggest witch hunt in the history of politics“. If approved, it will become the first president subjected to two political trials in US history
The United States lives a few moments of unprecedented political tension less than a week before the formal handover ceremony, scheduled for January 20, in which Biden will assume the presidency. The authorities have already carried out a huge police deployment in Washington, with more than 10,000 personnel, and erecting fences around the Capitol, on whose steps will take place the investiture ceremony, to avoid the scenes of the chaotic day last Wednesday that went around the world.
