If after the storming of the Capitol by demonstrators, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and the U.S. administration will not remove President Donald Trump from office, impeachment proceedings will be initiated.
This was announced by Deputy Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Catherine Clarke on CNN on January 8.
We know that our time is limited and every day that Donald Trump remains president of the United States is dangerous. So we can use procedural tools to quickly invoke the impeachment clause for a vote in the House,вЂќ Clark said.
She clarified that the issue will be up for debate in the middle of next week.
According to NBC, so far more than 200 members of Congress have called for Trump's removal from office through the 25th Amendment to the Constitution (declaring the president incompetent), impeachment, or resignation.
