Democrats mull Trump impeachment
Democrats in the US House of Representatives said they will introduce an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Monday, charging him with "incitement of insurrection" for encouraging the mob that stormed the Capitol on Wednesday as a joint session of Congress met to certify his election loss to President-elect Joe Biden.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday the House of Representatives would begin impeachment proceedings if Trump doesn't leave office immediately by resignation or removal from office by Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet by means of the disability clause in the 25th Amendment to the Constitution.
Biden said at a news conference on Friday that it was up to Congress to decide whether to impeach Trump, but that the fastest way to remove the president would be his own inauguration on Jan 20.
He said he wanted Congress ready the day he's sworn in to address his agenda, led by new measures to curb the COVID-19 pandemic and stimulate the economy.
