Donald Trump is the first president in American history to be impeached twice. Under the charge of “incitement of insurrection,” Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, set the tone for the moves affecting the current of Head of State. Among other discrepancies, the call-to-action is being fueled by the escalated uprising that took place on Capitol Hill. According to CNN, there is a strong prediction that Trump will finish his term. However, with McConnell in favor of impeachment, there is a higher chance for certain moves to be made.
Reports from CNN stated that the Democrats in the House of Representatives released their final words behind their strategy to impeach Trump, and they took it to a vote on Wednesday.
The second call for impeachment came after loyal Trump supporters compromised the sanctity of one of the most historic institutions of American history. Results from the dangers that took place led to the deaths of five citizens, including two Capitol Hill police officers.. The severity of the president’s influence has shown to endanger lives; for that reason, policymakers are not taking this this event lightly.
The second impeachment will have a different process than the first attempt. McConnell once protected the position Trump holds, is now insinuating that he is in favor of the action needed to remove “Trumpism” and any further damage to the integrity of U.S. government. According to CNN, McConnell “made it clear” that the trial will not start until President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in.
President-elect Biden released a statement on Wednesday; he enlisted his hopes in the Senate. He encouraged the necessary action and direct legislative functions that look to strengthen the safety of the country.
Quoting words from Biden, “This nation also remains in the grip of a deadly virus and a reeling economy.” Biden continued, “I hope that the Senate leadership will find a way to deal with their constitutional responsibilities on impeachment, while also working on the other urgent business of this nation.”
Lawmakers from all parties are speaking out; Democratic member, James Clyburn, is seeing promise in this second attempt to remove the president from power. Clyburn stated, “I think that Mitch McConnell and a few others recognize that that’s the quickest way to get him out of their hair so-to-speak,”
Rendering quotes from previously noted sources, Clyburn continued, “… there will be people who will conduct the trial. Our managers will do a good job of that. They don’t have to do a good job, to tell you the truth—Just put up the videos and bring in the people who are the recipients of these phone calls. I think there will be enough on the record, and so, he could very well get a conviction.”
A historic first has been made on Wednesday, as Trump becomes the first U.S. President to receive two indictments to be removed from office. The second call to impeachment was due to a recent uprising, led by supporters of Trump, that leaves five people dead. There is a strong estimate of his time that the Oval Office will continue; however, the Senate is supportive to the action needed to protect Capitol Hill.
