On Tuesday, incumbent US President Donald Trump called an impeachment filed against him by Democratic members of the House of Representatives “absolutely absurd.” The AFP agency informed about it.
Democrats in the lower house of the US Congress, who are suing the outgoing US president for “inciting an uprising” in connection with last week’s attack by his supporters on the Capitol building. According to Trump, their actions provoke “huge anger” in the country, according to the AP agency. However, the president immediately added that he “does not want any violence”.
Trump spoke to the media at the airport, from where he heads to Texas to inspect the border wall with Mexico. These were the president’s first statements to reporters since January 6, when his supporters forcibly broke into the Capitol, the building of the US Congress, and Trump himself had called on them to “show strength” shortly before. Trump did not answer media questions on Tuesday, the AP said.
However, he also commented on social networks, which blocked his accounts after the violence in the capital Washington. According to Trump, the big technology companies made a “catastrophic mistake”.
Supporters of the Republican president stormed the Capitol building in Washington on Wednesday, January 6, interrupting a joint session of the two chambers of Congress, formally confirming Biden’s victory in the November election. The resulting chaos and violence led to the deaths of five people. Trump had previously re-ignited his supporters with unsubstantiated allegations of election rigging and urged them to march to the Capitol.
The House of Representatives plans to vote Tuesday night on a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to make use of the 25th Amendment to the House, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi giving him 24 hours to respond. The amendment allows the cabinet majority to remove powers from the president and confer them on the vice president.
The Democrats will then proceed to the aforementioned constitutional lawsuit, which they filed in the House of Representatives on Monday.
