“He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.” “These facts require immediate actions by President Trump,” he continued. A few Republicans defended him, but most others simply argued that a rush to impeach Mr. Trump without a hearing or an investigation raised constitutional questions. With Democrats controlling the House, Mr. Trump is expected to become the first American president to be impeached twice. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington sent a letter to Mr. Trump on Sunday asking for an emergency declaration to obtain additional funding for inauguration security. On Tuesday, a federal inspector general questioned an order to deliver the estimates before Mr. Trump leaves office, after whistle-blowers warned that the rush would imperil their accuracy.

The House will push ahead Tuesday with efforts to remove President Donald Trump from office for inciting last week's deadly attack on the Capitol. On Wednesday, the House plans to decide whether to make Trump the first president ever impeached twice. The vice president has so far resisted calls to remove Trump from office. Democrats introduced competing versions of impeachment articles on Monday. Some Democrats have also questioned whether the House should send articles to the Senate immediately after it impeaches Trump.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats in the U.S. Congress will try to remove President Donald Trump from office this week, either by pressuring Vice President Mike Pence or in a historic second impeachment attempt, after Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol building.

AFTER THAT: IMPEACHMENTAssuming Pence does not act, the House would next bring impeachment legislation up for a vote, Pelosi said. A two-thirds vote would be needed to convict Trump of the impeachment charge and remove him from office. By the time the Senate turned to the impeachment charge, Trump would be long out of the White House.

House prepares to impeach Trump for inciting the U.S. Capitol riot

It puts them just shy of the 218-vote majority needed to impeach Trump in the House, though the number could end up lower due to vacancies and absences. The House will likely vote to impeach Trump by later this week, only a few days before President-elect Joe Biden will take office one week from Wednesday. Trump exhorted his supporters outside the White House to march on the Capitol shortly before the Capitol siege and repeated lies that widespread fraud cost him the November election. The White House and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., have argued impeachment would divide the country. If all Democrats vote to convict Trump, 17 Republicans would have to join them to meet the needed two-thirds threshold.

The intensifying effort to oust Trump has drawn scattered support from Republicans, whose party has been divided by the president’s actions. SCATTERED REPUBLICAN SUPPORT FOR REMOVALA small but growing number of Republican lawmakers have joined calls for Trump to step down, and several high-ranking administration officials have resigned in protest. Mitch McConnell, the Republican Senate majority leader, has suggested any trial would likely occur after Trump’s term ends, when Democrats will take control of the Senate thanks to victories in two Georgia runoff elections last week. But a Senate conviction requires a two-third majority, which would take at least 17 Republican votes. Democratic President-elect Joe Biden has not taken a position on Trump’s impeachment, saying he will leave it to Congress to decide.

He told CNN he believed Trump could be held criminally liable in the events at the Capitol. Lisa Murkowski on Friday became the first Republican U.S. senator to say Trump should resign immediately, and Republican Ben Sasse said he would “definitely consider” impeachment. Republican leaders have urged the Democratic-led House not to initiate impeachment proceedings for a historic second time against Trump. The House could take up impeachment on Tuesday or Wednesday, Clyburn told CNN’s “State of the Union.”Biden has not taken a position on Trump’s impeachment, saying he will leave it to Congress. The Republican-controlled Senate cleared Trump during his first impeachment trial over allegations he threatened U.S. national security.

Representative Hakeem Jeffries and other members of New York’s congressional delegation have called for swift impeachment of President Trump. “A second impeachment, only days before President Trump will leave office, is as unnecessary as it is inflammatory,” the lawmakers wrote.

Toomey, Republican of Pennsylvania, said President Trump had effectively “disqualified himself” from ever running for office again.

Democratic members of the House of Representatives will introduce formal articles of impeachment on Monday, Representative Ted Lieu said on Twitter. The intensifying effort to oust Trump from the White House has drawn scattered support from Republicans, whose party has been splintered by the president’s actions. The odds that Trump will actually be removed before Jan. 20, when President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in, remain long. Twitter quickly deleted those posts and soon after suspended the Trump campaign account as well. The House impeached Trump in December 2019 for pressuring the Ukrainian president to investigate Biden, but the Senate acquitted him in February 2020.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a statement Friday signalling that House members are ready to move forward with articles of impeachment as well 25th Amendment legislation. Democratic House leaders are looking to vote on articles of impeachment as early as Monday, according to Rep. Katherine Clark. Vice President Mike Pence's advisors told Insider that Pence would oppose 25th Amendment legislation, and in a speech today, Biden said the decision to impeach Trump would lie with Congress. "I have instructed the Rules Committee to be prepared to move forward with Congressman Jamie Raskin's 25th Amendment legislation and a motion for impeachment," Pelosi's statement said. "Accordingly, the House will preserve every option — including the 25th Amendment, a motion to impeach or a privileged resolution for impeachment."

ET Live Updates: Twitter Bans Trump Account, Resignations Grow and Impeachment Threat Looms House Democrats intend to introduce an article of impeachment on Monday charging President Trump with “willfully inciting violence against the government of the United States.” President-elect Joe Biden prioritizes the economy, saying there is a “a dire, dire need to act now.”Democrats ready impeachment charge against Trump for inciting the mob. The threat was part of an all-out effort by furious Democrats, backed by a handful of Republicans, to pressure Mr. Trump to leave office in disgrace after the hourslong siege by his supporters on Wednesday on Capitol Hill. At least one Republican, Senator Lisa Murkowski, Republican of Alaska, followed Ms. Pelosi’s lead and told The Anchorage Daily News that she was considering leaving the Republican Party altogether because of Mr. Trump. Among enraged Democrats, an expedited impeachment appeared to be the most attractive option to remove Mr. Trump and register their outrage at his role in encouraging what became an insurrection. The sweeping clampdown on asylum would have prevented a large swath of people from qualifying for protection in the United States by narrowing eligibility.

(CNN) News outlets are publishing more and more videos , photos and testimonials from Wednesday's pro-Trump riot on Capitol Hill. The public didn't find out that a US Capitol Police officer was gravely wounded until Thursday, for example. But there was something way, way darker, more violent, more sinister, and more organized happening in that Capitol on Wednesday. On the internet, Hayes' segment was titled "Must-see new video shows Capitol riot was way worse than we thought ." It understandably took some time for journalists to digest what they'd witnessed and ingest their video from the Capitol.

The U.S. attorney in Washington initially refused to rule out investigating Mr. Trump’s role in the riot. The deadly storming of the Capitol by Mr. Trump’s supporters transformed the politics of Washington in ways that were still hard to measure. The December call to the investigator, like the call Mr. Trump made to Mr. Raffensperger, was recorded, the official said. Mr. Trump had pressured Mr. Pence publicly and privately to overturn the certifications and throw them back to the states so that Mr. Trump could try to undo results in states that Mr. Biden won. Parler is one of several upstarts that have courted President Trump’s supporters with promises of “unbiased” and “free speech” social networks.

REUTERS/Carlos BarriaWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives plan to introduce new articles of impeachment against Republican President Donald Trump on Monday, calling for his removal from office, two people familiar with the matter said on Friday. The sources said the articles, which are formal charges of misconduct, were crafted by Democratic Representatives David Cicilline, Ted Lieu and Jamie Raskin following this week’s assault on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters.

“Accordingly, the House will preserve every option – including the 25th Amendment, a motion to impeach or a privileged resolution for impeachment,” Pelosi said in a statement after a three-hour meeting with House Democrats. “With great respect, our deliberations will continue.”Twitter Inc said it would permanently suspend Trump’s account because of the risk of further incitement. Law professor Brian Kalt said on Twitter that Pelosi’s call for legislation on the 25th Amendment is unlikely to happen before the end of Trump’s presidency. The 25th Amendment allows Congress to establish a “body” that can, with the support of the vice president, declare the president unable to do the job. And Pence is opposed to the idea of using the amendment to remove Trump, an adviser said.

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” Twitter said. Plans for future armed protests were proliferating on and off Twitter, the company added, including a proposed secondary attack on the Capitol on Jan. 17. There was no immediate response from the White House to the move by Twitter. While he remains in office, Trump would still have access to the official @POTUS presidential account. Biden told reporters he viewed Trump as “unfit” for office but said he would let Congress decide what to do.
