Decision of Republican reps means more trouble for Trump
There is now seemingly more trouble for Trump. Three key members of the US House of Representatives from Trump’s Republican party have vowed to vote to impeach President Donald Trump today.
Remember that no Republican supported Trump’s first impeachment in 2019. Still, these lawmakers have said they would support the President’s removal this time around.
President Trump had come under heavy fire when he was accused of expressly encouraging his supporters to launch a deadly attack on the US Capitol.
Although the President has denied having a hand in the attack, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi on Monday, introduced the article for his impeachment and vowed that action would be taken. This essentially spells more trouble for Trump.
Trump yesterday warned against the move to impeach him, insisting that it was causing tremendous anger and danger. He added that Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have continued on this terrible path.
And now Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the number three Republican in the House and the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, said she would vote to impeach Trump.
According to her, the President “summoned” the mob that attacked the Capitol last week, “assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack.” She also said that Trump betrayed his office and his oath to the constitution.
Also, New York Rep. John Katko, a former Federal Prosecutor, said he would vote to impeach the President.
In the same vein, Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois said he would vote to impeach Trump.
