Hres 24 on Impeachment ongoing vote will pass the house of representatives. only 217 votes are required to Impeach.
What congress is trying to invoke through Impeachment is the 14th Amendment to the Constitution Section 3.
“No Person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
It comes amid swelling anger over the US Capitol riot, fomented by the outgoing President, which left five people dead, including a police officer.
House of Congress lawmakers seek to charge the Republican with “incitement of insurrection”.
The Democrats said they would only halt their bid if he resigns or is removed under the 25th Amendment.
Even after the Washington violence on Wednesday, President Trump – who has fought to have his election overturned – vowed he will return to power. Individuals are allowed two terms in the White House so President Trump would be permitted to run again in 2024 unless he receives a life ban.
A two-thirds Senate majority is needed to convict him of the proposed charge but a vote on disqualifying him for ever could pass by simple majority.
F.B.I. officials in Virginia had warned about a threat of violence the day before the riots.
The warning had mentioned people sharing a map of tunnels and an online thread in which people said people should be “ready for war.”
The New York Times has reported that the breach at the capital began while President Trump was still speaking to the crowd.
This seems to be a direct challenge to the Idea that President Trump incited the capital riots.
Below is the transcript of what Donald Trump said is his Speech that he is being impeached for.
“After this, we’re going to walk down and I’ll be there with you. We’re going to walk down. We’re going to walk down any one you want, but I think right here. We’re going walk down to the Capitol, and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators, and congressmen and women. We’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong. We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. Today we will see whether Republicans stand strong for integrity of our elections, but whether or not they stand strong for our country, our country. “
“Today, we see a very important event though, because right over there, right there, we see the event going to take place. And I’m going to be watching, because history is going to be made. We’re going to see whether or not we have great and courageous leaders or whether or not we have leaders that should be ashamed of themselves throughout history, throughout eternity, they’ll be ashamed. And you know what? If they do the wrong thing, we should never ever forget that they did. Never forget. We should never ever forget. “
“So we’re going to, we’re going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue, I love Pennsylvania Avenue, and we’re going to the Capitol and we’re going to try and give … The Democrats are hopeless. They’re never voting for anything, not even one vote. But we’re going to try and give our Republicans, the weak ones, because the strong ones don’t need any of our help, we’re going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country. So let’s walk down Pennsylvania Avenue. I want to thank you all. God bless you and God bless America. Thank you all for being here, this is incredible. Thank you very much. Thank you.”News Verifier Media
