Psaki was asked if Trump's impeachment process is constitutional
Press Secretary of the US President Jane Psaki answered a question about the start of the impeachment process of ex-US President Donald Trump.
During the briefing, one of the journalists expressed the opinion that this situation вЂњcould create a dangerous precedent for the institution of the presidency.вЂќ
A White House spokeswoman noted that US President Joe Biden, in a statement, expressed the opinion that the impeachment process should continue and be completed, вЂњas predetermined by history and many laws.вЂќ
According to her, the politician intends to wait for the final decision of the Senate, since he should вЂњfocus on the needs of the American people, getting people back to work, overcoming the pandemic.вЂќ
At the same time, she refused to clarify the question of journalists about the constitutionality of the impeachment process.
вЂњI donвЂ™t think I or we (should) give an opinion,вЂќ Psaki concluded.
Earlier, the impeachment process for Trump started in the US Senate.
On January 6, supporters of the then-current President Donald Trump stormed the building of the US Congress, interrupting a meeting at which parliament was supposed to approve the results of the last elections. After that, the US Congress officially approved Biden's victory, and Trump condemned the violence in the Capitol and promised to guarantee a peaceful transfer of power.
