Republicans in the US House of Representatives have blocked a Democrat’s move to roll out legislation urging Vice President Mike Pence to begin the process of enacting the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to impeach President Donald Trump.
House Democrats sought to approve the legislation rolling out immediately for discussion, but Republicans blocked the move.
The House of Representatives of the US Congress also published a bill calling for Trump to be removed and accusing him of committing “grave crimes and transgressions” in light of the storming of the Capitol.
The drafters considered that Trump incited his supporters to storm Congress and practice looting, destruction and killing in it, stressing that by this he showed that he would “continue to represent a threat to national security, democracy and the constitution if he is allowed to remain in office.”
The document called for “Trump to be removed, tried and removed from his office,” while preventing him from holding any position in the United States.
