[Comprehensive news from our newspaper] After the riots that led to the death of the U.S. Capitol, the current U.S. President Trump was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives for the second time. He also became the first president in American history to be impeached twice.
The impeachment clause accused Trump of "seditioning rebellion" and played a role in the violent attack on the U.S. Capitol last week.
During the heated debate on the impeachment case in the Capitol, there are special security personnel including armed National Guard personnel in the Capitol to provide protection.
In his speech in the House of Representatives, Democratic House Speaker Pelosi said that the President of the United States incited such a riot and was an armed rebellion against our common country.He has to go, he is a clear threat to the country we all love.
Former Democratic presidential candidate, Congressman Castro called Trump "the most dangerous man ever to occupy the Oval Office."
Waters, a Democrat, even accused Trump of wanting a civil war.
As the situation unfolded, President Trump issued a statement calling for an end to the violence.
The statement said, "In view of more reports of demonstrations, I urge no violence, illegal acts, or vandalism of any kind. This is not my position, nor the position of the United States. I call on all Americans to help ease tension. The situation and calmness."
Although many Republicans condemned the president's actions, they believed that impeaching the president would cause division. In addition, the president is now very close to his expected departure.
The minority leader of the House of Representatives, Rep. McCarthy, is a staunch ally of the president.He said he believed Trump was responsible for the fatal Capitol attack last week and should immediately condemn the mob, but impeaching the president would be a "mistake."
The U.S. Constitution requires the Senate to have two-thirds of the vote to convict the president and then remove him from office.
Senate Majority Leader McConnell told Senate Minority Leader Schumer that he was unwilling to convene an emergency meeting to consider Trump's removal.This means that the trial may not begin until the beginning of Biden’s presidency, which may cause the new administration to be distracted.
The majority leader of the House of Representatives and the No. 9 Democrat Hall said that once the impeachment is approved, the Democrats intend to submit the case to the Senate "as soon as possible."The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Pelosi, has appointed nine impeachment staff members who will be introduced during the Senate trial.
Defense officials have confirmed that the National Guard is ready for the inauguration of President-elect Biden next week. By then, as many as 2 soldiers will be deployed to the country’s capital.
In addition, it is reported that more than 100 people have been arrested on criminal charges related to the U.S. Capitol riots last week.The charges involved violating the curfew law, assaulting law enforcement officials, theft of government property, and possession of guns and explosives and other related federal felony counts.
U.S. federal prosecutors and the FBI said this week that they will pursue more suspects who were discovered through photos and videos taken on the day of the melee on January 1. (Child force)
