Short the winner of the autumn elections will be replaced in seven days in the White House Joe Biden, however, the Democratic Party’s leaders insist that its actions last week call for a radical response. Before the start of the Congress meeting on the results of the presidential election Trump called on his supporters to go to the Capitol, talking about the need to “fight for life.” A crowd of his followers then clashed with the police and broke into the headquarters of Congress, the riots claimed five lives.
According to the Democrat’s motion for a resolution, the president contributed to “violence against the United States government” and betrayed public confidence. Unlike Trump’s first impeachment in late 2019, this time some Republican members of the Democrat-dominated House join the effort to file a constitutional lawsuit. A simple majority is enough to prosecute the president.
The lawsuit could be filed with the Senate later this week, but it will probably not be considered until after the inauguration of Trump’s successor at the White House, Joe Biden. This democratic politician will take office next Wednesday.
Republicans also went against Trump
“The wall of Republican support that allowed Trump to go through a seemingly endless series of crises is beginning to burst with sudden force.” wrote the AP agency. At least five Republican members of the House of Representatives have already announced that they will vote to file a new constitutional lawsuit. Congressman Adam Kinzinger said in an interview on CBS television that he expects other votes of his party colleagues for impeachment. In the end, ten were found. “This is one of those moments that goes beyond politics,” said.
President Trump, who has blocked accounts on Twitter and Facebook, has not commented much on the matter yet. On Tuesday, he called the new constitutional lawsuit ridiculous, while not acknowledging responsibility for the events of last Wednesday. Recent reports from the US media, however, suggest that this time support could be found in the US Senate for its conviction. At the same time, the Senate could ban Trump from running for president.
Pelosi: Trump is a clear threat. It needs to be removed
The outgoing US President Trump is a clear and immediate threat to the United States and needs to be removed. This is what the head of the House of Representatives, Nancy, said Pelosi opened the second part of the debate on the indictment of Trump for “inciting rebellion”.
“We know that the President of the United States has exhorted this uprising … It is a clear and immediate threat to a country we all love.” the American media quoted Pelosia as saying. “The president must be indicted and I am convinced that the Senate must condemn him,” she said.
The Speaker of the House spoke at the beginning of the main two-hour debate on bringing a constitutional lawsuit, or impeachment of the President. This bloc was preceded by an initial debate and a pair of votes on procedural matters.
