According to CNBC, Speaker Pelosi of the U.S. House of Representatives announced that nine Democratic members will serve as impeachment managers.
The U.S. House of Representatives voted on the 12th local time to ask Vice President Pence to use the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to remove President Trump.
Before the vote, U.S. media sources said that Pence refused to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump.
According to previous reports, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Pelosi said on the 10th that House Democrats will propose a resolution requiring Vice President Pence to use the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to remove President Trump.
If Pence refuses, the House of Representatives will advance the process of impeaching Trump.
The 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution amends and provides for the succession procedure of the President of the United States and the vice president when there is a vacancy for various reasons, and adds a new provision for the Vice President and cabinet members to judge whether the President can continue to perform his or her duties.
According to the U.S. Constitution, if the impeachment clause against the president is passed by a simple majority in the House of Representatives, it means that the president is impeached.
Next, the Senate will hear the impeachment case. If two-thirds of the senators support the impeachment clause, the president will be convicted and stepped down.
