The current U.S. President Donald Trump is a danger to the country and should be removed from power. This was stated by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at a meeting on impeachment in the U.S. Congress on January 13. The broadcast is carried by CNN.
“The president of the United States has instigated this riot, this armed insurrection against our country. He must go. He is a clear and present threat to the country,” Pelosi said.
She stressed that Trump was responsible for the “armed insurrection” and therefore deserves impeachment, and that the people who attacked the Capitol are “domestic terrorists.”
Earlier in the day, the U.S. House of Representatives began considering impeaching Trump. A resolution was passed asking Vice President Mike Pence to remove Trump from power.
The procedure should be initiated precisely by the U.S. Deputy Prime Minister within the framework of the 25th amendment to the Constitution on the President’s inability to perform his duties. Meanwhile, Pence opposed impeachment.
Also on January 13, it became known that about 20 congressmen from the Republican Party are planning to support the impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump, who is a Republican.
January 11, the House of Representatives published the text of a resolution of impeachment against Trump. The authors of the document believe that he will remain a threat to national security, democracy and the country’s constitution based on his actions on the day of the riots near Congress.
On Jan. 8, Pelosi, in a conversation with Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley, warned that if Trump did not leave office immediately, Congress would take action to try to remove him from power, CNN reported.
