The U.S. Congress's House of Representatives passed the symbolic resolution that urges Vice President Mike Pence to apply the 25th amendment to the Constitution, which gives him the right to remove President Donald Trump from his office.

According to NPR, 232 lawmakers voted yes, and 205 declined the resolution. Only one Republican, Adam Kirzinger from the House of Representatives from Illinois joined the Democrats when voting for the resolution.

The document stipulates that Trump "widely advertised and broadly encouraged" the protests that led to last week's violence". It also mentions Trump's multiple attempts to de-legitimize the results of presidential election with false statements about widespread cases of rigging the voting results.

The document was passed soon after Congressmen from the Democratic Party blamed Trump for fueling the riot and offered to impeach him. As the Vice President, Mike Pence already refused to apply the 25th amendment to remove Trump; Democrats from the House of Representatives, in turn, claimed they would vote for Trump's impeachment if Pence refused to apply the amendment.

Trump himself stated that the 25th amendment could pose no risk for him.
