A vote to impeach President Donald Trump over his role in last week’s storming of Congress is expected to be held in the US House of Representatives.
The reason for this development is the invasion of Capital building by pro-Trump protesters.This incident left five people dead.
Democrats have accused the president of encouraging his supporters to attack the building, BBC reports.
The incident has resulted into an unusual decision by members of Mr Trump’s Republican Party. They have made up their mind to will join Democrats to impeach the president on Wednesday, formally charging the president with inciting insurrection.
In response to the development, President Trump has rejected any responsibility for the violence.
Sources have disclosed that Mr Trump told supporters at a rally in Washington DC to “fight like hell” against the result of November’s election.
On the likely outcome, the vote is likely to pass as Democrats hold a majority in the House.
On voting, a two-thirds majority would be needed to convict Mr Trump then, the case will head for the Senate, where a trial will be held to determine the president’s guilt.
For conviction of the President, at least 17 Republicans would have to vote. As many as 20 Senate Republicans are open to convicting the president, the New York Times reports.
For questions bothering on what the Democrats want to achieve, since the Senate could also use an impeachment trial to hold a vote blocking Mr Trump from ever running for office again.
