The U.S. presidential race winner Joe Biden has no intentions to launch the procedure of impeachment of Donald Trump. People from Biden's close circle reported that as quoted by CNN.

"He did not weigh the negotations on the 25th amendment, and his opinion about the impeachment is the same", the sources said. According to them, currently, Biden prefers to focus on taking power, which should happen in 13 days.

"Impeachment won't help unite this country. It's a matter to be solved by the Congress". said the man from Biden's circle.

Earlier, Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House of Representatives said that the Congress could launch the procedure of impeachment of Donald Trump, if Vice President Mike Pence and the government do not apply the 25th amendment for the President's removal from the office.

Clashes with law enforcers took place; an officer was injured in the fight ended up on life support system. The session was postponed and then resumed. Biden's victory has been officially confirmed.

Trump, who had previously claimed he would "never give up" or recognize his loss eventually made a public statement, saying that he would now focus on "smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power".
