The US House of Representatives has confirmed the charges against President Donald Trump. The majority of Congressmen voted for the document of impeachment. Thus, Trump became the first president in US history to be impeached twice by the House of Representatives.
The document will now be sent to the Senate. It needs 67 votes out of 100 for its final approval, but Democrats lack 17 votes of Republican senators for this.
The previous document of impeachment, passed by the House of Representatives in December 2019, did not receive support in the Senate.
At the same time, according to the American media, the Democrats are considering the possibility of continuing the discussion of impeachment after Joe Biden’s inauguration, when they get an advantage in the Senate. The purpose of this procedure is to prevent Trump from running for the presidency in 2024.
