There are now only 9 days left for Donald Trump’s presidential term. On January 20, Joe Biden will assume the new US presidency. But, after the attack on the US Capitol (US Parliament), Donald Trump is going to be 9 days heavier. A fully united opposition against him is soon going to bring the impeachment motion. If this proposal is tabled, Trump’s troubles are certainly going to increase, as many Republicans of his Republican Party are also in his favor.
Nancy Pelosi opened a front against Trump
Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi said on Sunday that the House would take impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump. At the same time, he also asked Vice President Mike Pence and Trump’s cabinet to evict Trump using Article 25. Pelosi said that trumps are a threat to democracy. Trump will become the only President to face impeachment action twice as soon as this proposal is tabled.
The impeachment motion will be brought if the Vice President does not act
Pelosi said in a letter to his colleagues that the first House would vote so that Vice President Mike Pence would use the powers obtained under the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. He said that if this does not happen, the bill will be brought in the House for impeachment for 24 hours. We have to take immediate steps to protect our Constitution and our democracy because democracy and the Constitution are threatened by the presidency of President Trump.
Commotion set in US parliament
On Monday, the Pelosi-led team will ask Pence and cabinet ministers to vote on a resolution to implement the 25th amendment. Since the Parliament is not in session, there can be an objection to its idea. Pelosi will then propose before the full House on Tuesday.
If it is to be passed, Pence and the cabinet will have 24 hours before impeachment proceedings in the House. With the process of impeachment speeding up, the pressure on Trump to quit before his tenure has increased.
Impeachment proposal was brought for the first time in December 2019
The impeachment motion was passed in December 2019 in the House of Representatives against Trump on charges of misuse of power.
After several weeks of investigations into allegations of corruption against Trump, the Democratic Party’s majority House of Representatives in December accused the president of misusing his office and disrupting Congress (Parliament) action. However, the charges were dismissed in the Senate after a two-week hearing.
Demand for removal of Trump in the document
The document states that if Trump stays on the presidency, it will do more harm to democracy and hinder the way to effectively meet his foreign policy goals. The document calls on Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo to support legal efforts by Vice President Pence and other members of the cabinet to implement the 25th Amendment.
