U.S House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, has said that the House will move to impeach President Trump, adding that they will only be stopped if Vice President Mike Pence initiates the 25th amendment to remove Trump from his role as President.
This was disclosed by the Speaker on Sunday, and reported by Bloomberg.
The Speaker revealed that Democrat Party members would request a resolution through Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, in a bid to “to declare the President incapable of executing the duties of his office.”
She added that if there were any objections, the motion would be sent to the floor for a vote on Tuesday, where the Vice President would be given 24 hours.
Donald Trump said he would not be attending the inauguration of President-elect, Joe Biden, after repeatedly calling the election a fraud, and his supporters mounted a violent insurrection at the US Capitol last week.
However, U.S Vice President, Mike Pence, announced that he would attend the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on the 29th of January, which is a move against President Trump’s plans.
