Vice president under pressure to remove President Trump from office

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has increased the pressure on Vice-President Mike Pence to act on his powers, and remove Donald Trump from office over his role in the riot that occurred at the Capitol.

 

It has been reported that Mike Pence is against the idea. Nonetheless, Democrats are posed to impeach Mr. Trump, who had urged supporters to march on the Capitol via his Twitter account.

Capitol riot blamed on President Donald Trump

Donald Trump has been accused by Democrats and an increasing number of Republicans over the riot that occurred at the Capitol, during which it’s believed that assassinations against members of the congress were planned.

 

The riot was fueled by accusations by Donald Trump, in which he alleged that the election results were as a result of widespread fraud.

 

Five people, including a capitol police officer, died during the attack.

 

Mr. Trump has made no public statements since he was banned from several social media platforms—including Twitter—on Friday.

House of Representatives to vote on Monday concerning the impeachment of Donald Trump

 

Ms. Pelosi wrote to lawmakers saying the House of Representatives would present a resolution on Monday to formally request that Mr. Pence invoke the 25th Amendment, which would allow Mr. Pence to remove Mr. Trump from the White House and become acting president.

 

“We will act with urgency, because this president represents an imminent threat to both,” Ms. Pelosi said in her letter. “The horror of the ongoing assault on our democracy perpetrated by this President is intensified and so is the immediate need for action.”

 

A Republican senator, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, said the president should “resign and go away as soon as possible.”

 

The house Democrats have bowed to go ahead with the impeachment if Vice President Mike Pence refuses to invoke the 25th amendment.
