House Democrats seek to impeach Donald Trump for 'incitement of insurrection'

Nancy Pelosi gives Mike Pence deadline on Trump and 25th Amendment

House Republicans on Monday blocked Democrats from enacting a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to use the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office as Democrats forged ahead with plans to impeach the president, likely on Wednesday, for his role in inciting the riot at the U.S. Capitol. Di session go continue tomorrow.

The earliest the House can vote on an article of impeachment is Wednesday and it's unclear when the House would send the articles to the Senate for a trial.

Mr. Cicilline said senators should come back early to hold a trial on impeachment.

Rep. David Cicilline, Rhode Island Democrat, said he had well more than 200 co-sponsors on his articles of impeachment, which accuse Mr.

With the clock ticking for the 20 January inauguration of Joe Biden, Democrats' drive to wrest power from President Donald Trump is gathering pace.

The Democrats' attempt to remove Trump will force House Republicans to make the choice between continuing to back a president they have nearly universally supported for four years, or breaking with him during his last days in office.

Senate rules mean the upper chamber would likely be unable to open an impeachment trial before January 19, and Toomey said he was unsure it was constitutionally possible to impeach someone once out of office. The group "will suspend contributions to those lawmakers who voted to undermine our democracy", Kim said. However, removal of a president under impeachment procedures requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate in addition to approval from the House.


Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a top Trump ally, tweeted that he was "disappointed to hear the House is proceeding with a second impeachment given that there are only nine days left in a Trump presidency".

Pence has privately dismissed the possibility that he would convene the cabinet to remove Trump.

"Let's give president-elect Biden the 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running".

Forty-three percent said Trump should not be thrown out of office, according to ABC/Ipsos, which surveyed 570 people between January 8 and January 9.

There's been an effort by Republicans to ask Biden to squelch the Democratic momentum for impeaching Trump.

Mrs. Pelosi said if Mr. Pence doesn't act within 24 hours after that point, the House will pursue another impeachment against Mr.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., holds a news conference on the day after violent protesters loyal to President Donald Trump stormed the US Congress, at the Capitol in Washington. Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a frequent Trump critic, said he would "vote the right way" if the matter were put in front of him.

At the rally, Mr Trump had said the USA presidential election had been "stolen" from him. Pence's office did not respond to questions about the issue.
