The term of US President Donald Trump is not even 9 days left. On January 20, newly elected President Joe Biden is going to take the oath of office. In such a situation, an article of impeachment (impeachment) has been formally brought on Monday by the House Democrats on charges of inciting a revolt against President Donald Trump over the heavy violence in the US Capitol last week. This can be raised on Wednesday in the House of Representatives with a majority of Democrats. However, the House has still been adjourned on this issue.
Here, a number of Republican lawmakers have written to President-elect Joe Biden, urging him to intervene on the decision to impeach Donald Trump. Among them are MPs who have opposed Donald Trump’s decision to go against the election results in the House. If Trump is convicted, he will be removed from office and replaced by the Vice President who is currently Mike Pence.
4 people lost their lives in the attack on Capitol Hill. If the impeachment motion is passed in the House of Representatives, it will go to the Senate for hearing. Members in the Senate will act as juries and vote to acquit or convict Trump. If Trump is convicted, he will be removed from office and replaced by the Vice President who is currently Mike Pence. After Trump’s defeat in the election on November 3, Joe Biden will take the oath of office on January 20.
Joe Biden called the Trump supporters crowd a domestic terrorist after the violent attack on the US Capitol Building (US Parliament House) and condemned the incident. With this, Biden has blamed outgoing President Donald Trump for this incident of violence that shook the capital. Joe Biden said, “Our president is not above the law. Justice is for the service of the general public. Not to save a powerful person.”
