Impeach Trump push continues – InDaily

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said he would “continue” after submitting a bill to impeach President Donald Trump, calling it a threat to democracy after a deadly attack on the Capitol. I am.

Pelosi announced in a letter to a colleague. She said House would not only act solemnly, but would act urgently in just a few days before Trump resigned on January 20th.

“We will act urgently because this president is an urgent threat to both in protecting our constitution and democracy,” she said.

“The fear of an ongoing attack on our democracy by this president is intensifying, and the urgent need for action is increasing.”

At the end of Saturday, Pelosi convened a conference call with her leadership team and repeatedly wrote to colleagues on Wednesday that Trump had to take responsibility for fostering violence by his supporters at the Capitol. I did.

She told caucuses, which are currently scattered all over the country during the two-week break, to “prepare to return to Washington this week,” but did not explicitly say that she would vote for impeachment.

Democrats in the House of Representatives introduced the impeachment article on Monday and were expected to vote soon on Tuesday. Biden’s top ally, Jim Clyburn, third in the House of Representatives, planned to blame the president on Sunday, but postponed the impeachment trial in the Senate for 100 days. This allows Joe Biden, who was elected in the presidential election, to focus on other priorities when he takes office on January 20th.

Meanwhile, Pennsylvania Republican Senator Pat Toomey joined Alaska’s Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski on Sunday, calling on Trump to “resign and leave as soon as possible.”

“I think the president certainly can’t get the job again,” Toumi said. “I don’t think he can be elected.”

Senator Mitch McConnell, leader of the Senate majority, said the impeachment trial could not begin on the current calendar before the inauguration on January 20.

Many Republicans have criticized Trump, but most feel that the impeachment will split during unity.

Still, some Republicans may support it.

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse said he would look at all the articles sent by the House of Representatives. Illinois General Assembly member Adam Kinzinger, a critic of Trump, said he would “vote the right way” if the issue was placed in front of him.

If the impeachment article is passed by the House of Representatives, it will be sent to the Senate for trial. Senator acts as a jury who acquits or convicts Trump. If convicted, Trump will be removed from the office and taken over by the Vice President. This is probably the first time the US president has been impeached twice.
