Trump impeachment move: Democrats move ahead with efforts to remove Trump – BBC News

Democrats have introduced an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump for his role in last week’s deadly invasion of the Capitol.

The article filed in the House on Monday accuses Mr Trump of “incitement of insurrection”.

Democrats say a vote on the article will go ahead in the House on Wednesday unless Vice-President Mike Pence invokes constitutional powers to remove Mr Trump from office.

Mr Pence is said to oppose the idea.

Calls for Mr Trump’s resignation, removal from office or impeachment have grown among Democrats and some Republicans in the days following the riots in Congress in which five people died.

The impeachment resolution accuses the president of encouraging his supporters to storm the Capitol building at a rally in which Mr Trump alleged, without evidence, that November’s presidential election was “stolen” from him.
