Trump’s impeachment: what is known
On January 6, in Washington, hundreds of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building during a special joint session of both houses of Congress to count and approve the votes of the Electoral College for the President and Vice President of the United States.
After several hours of riots, police released the Capitol building of protesters. The special session resumed, and congressmen claimed victory in the presidential election of Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
On January 7, both houses of the US Congress completed the vote count and approved Biden’s victory in the presidential election.
In turn, Trump promised an orderly transfer of power to Biden.
Biden’s inauguration is scheduled for January 20.
On January 11, representatives of the Democratic majority in the US House of Representatives presented a draft resolution on the impeachment of Trump for “inciting a revolt.”
Trump sees the Democratic-initiated impeachment of him as the greatest “witch hunt” in political history.
