Capitol riots: Democrats start move to impeach Trump again
According to details, the Democrats introduced an article of impeachment against Trump accusing him of ‘incitement of insurrection’.
As per democrats, a vote on the article will go ahead in the House on Wednesday unless Vice-President Mike Pence, who is said to oppose the idea, uses his constitutional powers to remove Trump from office.
"The president represents an imminent threat to our constitution, our country and the American people, and he must be removed from office immediately," Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.
The demand for Trump’s resignation, removal from office or impeachment has come following the riots in Congress in which five people died.
The impeachment resolution has accused Trump of inciting his voters to storm Congress building after he alleged that November's presidential election was "stolen" from him.
This is the second time Democrats have moved to impeach Trump. Earlier, in December 2019, he was impeached on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress but was later acquitted by Senate on both charges in February 2020.
No US president has ever been impeached twice.
