Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called Mike Pence to use the 25th amendment to remove Trump from the post before 20 January and said if he does not do so then she will put impeachment article on the table. Vice-President Mike Pence shows no signs of using the 25th Amendment. President-elect Joe Biden said impeachment was for Congress to decide and also said: " for a long time President Trump was not fit to hold the job". If House of Representatives impeaches Trump, Mr. Trump will be the first President to be impeached the second time in the US history. However, Mr. Trump would pass impeachment conviction which is to be done by Senate where Trump has enough support.
Many political leaders and experts condemn Mr. Trump for the siege of the Capitol. They blamed Trump to instigate the people to move towards the Capitol. "We're going to walk down to the Capitol and we're going to cheer on our brave senators and Congressmen and women," Mr Trump told the crowd, prompting his supporters "to fight". The siege of the Capitol prompted Nancy Pelosi to talk with a top military officer to prevent Trump from accessing nuclear codes.
Draft of impeachment has one article i.e. "incitement of insurrection". Trump is accused of creating or inciting his supporters to create lawless action in the Capitol. It also mentions that lawless activity in the Capitol was consistent with the prior efforts of Trump to subvert and obstruct the certification of President-elect Biden's win in November's presidential election.
