Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi said that if President Donald Trump does not resign immediately ‘in case of inciting the mob to enter the Capitol building’, the House will proceed with the impeachment process to remove him. Joe Biden will take the oath of office on January 20, following Trump’s defeat in the election held on November 3.
‘Proceed with the 25th Amendment’
Pelosi and Democrat leaders agree that Trump should be removed from office immediately following the incident of Trump’s supporters entering the Capitol Building (Parliament) on Wednesday. Pelosi said in a statement on Friday, “Members expect Trump to resign immediately but if he does not, I have directed the Rules Committee to proceed with MP Jamie Ruskin’s 25th amendment and impeachment motion.” Go.
Immediate start process’
After hours of discussion on the issue of the House Democratic Caucus, he said, “As per rule, the House will preserve all options including 25th amendment, a proposal for impeachment, privilege motion for impeachment”. Indian-American MP Pramila Jaipal said that the impeachment process should start immediately.
America ‘unsafe’ with Trump living
Member of Parliament Qiyelai Kahle said he fully supports Trump’s removal from the presidency, whether through the use of the 25th amendment or by bringing the fourth article of impeachment against him. He said that America has insecurity due to Trump staying in the White House.
MP Gregory Meeks, chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, led the committee’s demand for impeachment of Trump by Democratic lawmakers. In a letter to Pelosi, lawmakers have said that it is extremely important to hold them responsible for restoring America’s global leadership position and rule of law in terms of democracy.
