Member of the US House of Representatives Ilhan Omar is assembling documentation to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump hours after violent Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol. It was reported by CNN.
“I am drawing up Articles of Impeachment. Donald J. Trump should be impeached by the House of Representatives & removed from office by the United States Senate. We can’t allow him to remain in office, it’s a matter of preserving our Republic and we need to fulfill our oath,” Ilhan Omar tweeted.
The announcement came about 11 months after the Senate voted to acquit Trump on two articles of impeachment.
Earlier, Donald Trump's supporters breached the Capitol building in Washington, where Congress was approving the presidential election's results.
Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, announced that the leaders of Congress have decided to resume the joint meeting tonight to validate President-elect Joe Biden's victory.
Once the crisis in the Capitol building is lifted and ready for use, members will continue to certify the counting of electoral votes.
