There was a lot of excitement
Earlier, on the day of voting on the impeachment motion blaming President Donald Trump for the Capitol attack in the US Parliament witnessed tremendous fervor. Just before that, lawmakers passed a resolution asking Vice President Mike Pence to seize Trump's powers using constitutional force under the 25th Amendment. The motion received 223 votes against 205.
The proposal to snatch Trump's powers to the Vice President was brought by Maryland MP Jamie Ruskin. Republican MP Adam Kinzinger also voted in favor of the proposal. However, Mike Pence, Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, has already refused to use the motion and wrote that "in our Constitution, the 25th Amendment is not a means to punish or take away the right." Implementing the 25th amendment in this way would set a bad precedent. ”In this amendment, Pence would have been entitled to remove Trump from office and take powers until the newly elected President's oath. Here, MPs participated in the proceedings amid heavy security fortifications in the Parliament House (Capitol). The impeachment motion prepared by MPs Jamie Ruskin, David Cicilline, and Date Liu on Wednesday is co-sponsored by 211 members.
