January 8th – A rare scene in American political history occurred in Washington, D.C., on the afternoon of the 6th. A large number of demonstrators broke into the Capitol and fought with the police.
Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Pelosi called for Trump to be removed from office invoking the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, otherwise the United Nations will launch a second impeachment.
However, the U.S. media quoted people familiar with the matter as saying that Biden has no intention of promoting the impeachment process against Trump.
CNN quoted people familiar with the matter on the 7th as saying that President-elect Biden has no intention of starting impeachment proceedings against current President Trump, and he prefers to focus on his inauguration 13 days later.
Biden had no intention of discussing invoking the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to remove Trump from office, and shares the same view on impeachment. Impeaching Trump is not conducive to the unity of the country, says a person close to Biden.
But he added: “This is a matter that Congress decides.”
According to CNN’s previous news, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Pelosi said that she joined Senate Democratic Leader Schumer in calling on Vice President Pence to immediately remove the current president by invoking the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
If Pence and the cabinet do not take action, the U.S. Congress may be ready to launch another impeachment process again. .
Pelosi said that “the president called for inflammatory action and indescribable attacks on the United States and the people” and “should not remain in office”.
On the evening of the 7th local time, U.S. President Trump released content for the first time after his Twitter account was unblocked.
He said in the video that those who broke into the Capitol “tarnished American democracy” and that the offenders would pay the price.
He also said that the new government will take office on January 20 and will now focus on an orderly and smooth transition of regime, and what is needed is “healing and reconciliation”.
