Democrats give U.S. vice president ultimatum to oust Trump

Published

on

OperaMundi – The president of the United States House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, said on Sunday (10) that she is ready to start the second impeachment process against President Donald Trump, unless he is removed from office in the next few days. Democrats are determined to start a second impeachment process against Donald Trump, following the invasion of Congress last week. In the republican field, several parliamentarians are open to the idea of ​​supporting the measure. If convicted, Trump would become ineligible. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s first step will be to ask Vice President Mike Pence to remove Trump from disability, based on the 25th amendment to the constitution.

The 25th Amendment
allows the vice president to take the lead in the country when the president
unable to continue to perform their duties – for example,
example, if you become disabled due to a physical or mental illness. The
Democrats see Donald Trump as “unbalanced” and dangerous,
mainly after he encouraged his supporters to invade the
Capitol last Wednesday (1/6).

On Sunday,
House Speaker, Democrat Nancy Pelosi said
who will file an order this Monday (11/01) for Pence
activate, as a matter of urgency, the 25th amendment. The vice will have 24 hours of
term to position yourself.

Four days after the events on Capitol Hill, which left five dead and rocked the United States, Pelosi described the Republican president as an “imminent threat” against democracy and the American constitution.

Attack on democracy

“We will proceed with the presentation of impeachment legislation” to the House of Representatives plenary on Monday or Tuesday (11/11), if Trump is not removed from his office, “said Pelosi. “As the days go by, the horror of the continued attack on our democracy perpetrated by this president intensifies and also the immediate need for action,” he emphasized. The bill has already been drafted and has the support of around 200 deputies. After the vote in the House, the text goes to the Senate, which should only meet on the 19th, the eve of the inauguration of President-elect, Joe Biden.

Trump went on trial once in the Democratic-controlled House in December 2019 for pressuring the Ukrainian leader to investigate Biden, with the aim of undermining his chances of running for the 2020 presidential election. But he was eventually acquitted by Senate, with a Republican majority.

Nine days after Biden’s inauguration, the impeachment process is unlikely to go through, but Democrats have enough votes in the House to approve a new impeachment request and may even count on the support of some Republican lawmakers to begin the procedure. It is unlikely, however, that they will bring together the two-thirds majority needed to convict Trump in the Senate.
