More than 20 congressmen from the Republican Party wanted to support the impeachment of their party-mate, U.S. President Donald Trump.
There are allegedly a growing number of Republicans in the House of Representatives who may support the resolution. Another source of the network confirmed this information, but added that the number of such legislators ranges from 10 to 25 people.
CNN reminds us that three Republican congressmen have already voiced their support for Trump’s impeachment. The channel’s sources claim that even Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell accused Trump of misconduct and admitted that impeachment “would help get rid of Trumpism in the party.”
On January 11, the U.S. House of Representatives released a resolution to impeach Trump. Democrats also submitted a resolution to Congress to impeach the president. The politician is accused of sedition and of “seriously endangering the security of the United States and government institutions.” According to members of the House of Representatives, Trump remains a threat to national security and democracy, because of this he should be removed from office.
We are talking about the protest that took place on January 6 in Washington. Then Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, not recognizing the results of the November vote, which resulted in the election of Democrat Joe Biden as president. The rallies led to clashes with police. Five people were killed and dozens were detained.
