IMPEACHMENT AGAINST DONALD TRUMP MAY BEGIN ON JANUARY 21
Washington! Lawmakers on Wednesday voted in favor of sending the impeachment proceedings in the lower house of parliament to the upper house Senate against President Donald Trump of Washington America. The impeachment against Trump on charges of misuse of power and obstructing the work of Parliament will now run in the Senate. The impeachment proceedings in the Senate can start from January 21, which will be headed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. 228 MPs voted in favor of impeachment proceedings against Trump, while 193 MPs voted in opposition.
The lower house has appointed seven impeachment managers, who will argue on behalf of Democrats to remove Trump from the presidency. These managers have been appointed by Speaker of the lower house Nancy Pelosi. Let the Democrats dominate the 438-member lower house. On December 18, the House approved impeachment against Trump. Donald Trump, the 45th President of the US, is the third president in the country’s history against whom impeachment has been approved.
Republicans dominate the Senate, Trump is difficult to remove
Although the Senate has control of the Republicans, there is little chance that Trump will be removed from the presidency. Experts believe Trump’s power will be safe for the moment because even after the impeachment process is completed in the lower house, he is difficult to pass from the Senate with a Republican majority. Trump may withdraw in the same circumstances when at least 20 Republican MPs raise the flag of rebellion against him. At the moment its scope is scarce.
These allegations have been leveled on Trump
Trump is alleged to have pressured Ukraine’s government to investigate corruption against potential rival Joe Biden and his son in the 2020 presidential election. Biden’s sons are senior executives at an energy company in Ukraine. The alleged phone conversation between Trump and Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zalensky, is a key evidence for the impeachment.
‘Motive to damage Trump’s image before election’
On the other hand, the White House has hoped that President Trump will easily go through the process of impeachment. While signing a trade deal with China on Tuesday, Trump called it impeachment just a rumor and said it would have no effect. Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parskal said that just before the election it was an attempt to damage Trump’s political image.
