On Tuesday, the outgoing US President Donald Trump considered the move in the House of Representatives to impeach him “extremely absurd”, as hundreds of his supporters stormed the “Capitol” building during a session to officially announce his rival Joe Biden’s victory in the elections after he called them to go to There and pretend.
Trump said in a brief speech to reporters: “As for impeachment, I think this is a continuation of the largest witch hunt in political history … It is very ridiculous.”
And he continued, “The impeachment causes great anger … As for (House Speaker) Nancy Pelosi and (Senate Democrat leader) Chuck Schumer, their continuation on this path creates a great danger to our country and causes great anger. I do not want violence.” Himself answering a question whether he would resign.
It is noteworthy that for the second time during his reign of the United States, Trump may submit to isolation procedures, making him the first president to be subject to isolation measures twice in the country’s history.
The impeachment process begins with a vote in the House of Representatives on the articles of impeachment, which is a list of the charges against the president, and if the vote is made by a simple majority (50 percent plus 1, for example), the impeachment process begins, and then he is subjected to a trial in the Senate.
After the trial, the Senate votes to convict the president and remove him from office, and the success of this vote requires a two-thirds majority, which does not seem easy to achieve, given that the Republicans controlled the Senate at the time of Trump’s first impeachment, he was able to stay in power easily.
The exact wording of the charges was not yet known, but members of the House of Representatives distributed a statement accusing Trump of “inciting violence against the United States government.”
Trump is also accused of inviting Georgia State Secretary Brad Raffensperger to find 11,000 votes, which upended Joe Biden’s victory in the state.
US House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said the House is expected to begin discussing a second impeachment procedure for President Donald Trump on Wednesday after he was formally accused of inciting the revolt ahead of the storming of the Congress building last week.
A House aide said Hoyer told his Democratic comrades that the House would begin impeachment proceedings on Wednesday if Vice President Mike Pence did not respond to a request to enact the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution to impeach Trump.
