The US House of Representatives on Wednesday, January 13, began the issue of impeachment of incumbent President Donald Trump.
Earlier that day, the House of Representatives passed a resolution inviting Vice President Mike Pence to remove Trump from power.
The procedure for removing the head of state should be initiated by the US Deputy Prime Minister in the framework of the 25th amendment to the Constitution on the president’s inability to fulfill his duties. At the same time, Pence the day before spoke out against impeachment.
In turn, representatives of the US Democratic Party announced that if the Deputy Prime Minister did not agree to the attempt to remove Trump, they would impeach the American leader in the House of Representatives on charges of inciting insurgency.
On January 11, the House of Representatives published the text of the resolution to impeach Trump. The authors of the document believe that the current US president will remain a threat to national security, democracy and the country’s constitution, based on his actions on the day of unrest near the Congress.
On January 7, the US Congress approved the election of Democrat Joe Biden as President of the United States. The procedure took place against the backdrop of unrest in Washington: Trump supporters broke into the Capitol, killing five people, including a policeman.
