Democrats in the US Congress have made it clear that they will try to remove President Donald Trump from his post this week after his supporters stormed the Congress building in Washington DC last week
Since they do not seem to be succeeding in pressuring U.S. Vice President Mike Pence to activate a special constitutional amendment that would allow the removal of the president, they will instead try to put Trump on second court, which has never happened before. a president before.
Here is an overview of what to expect in the coming days:
If Mike Pence formally refuses to activate the 25th Amendment, then Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has already announced that Democrats will begin preparing a vote to put Trump on a new federal court.
If it is voted through, the case goes on to the Senate, where at least two-thirds must vote in favor if Trump is to be convicted of the indictment in a state court case.
In the Senate, the balance of power will be 50-50 between Democrats and Republicans.
Thus, at least 17 Republicans must turn their backs on Trump if the outgoing president is to be convicted.
Some Democrats have aired the idea that one can wait 100 days to send the charges in the Supreme Court case on to the Senate to avoid the case overshadowing Joe Biden’s first time as president.
Congress could potentially – if it finds Trump guilty – permanently exclude Trump from running for a new presidential election, even if his presidency has expired.
