Donald Trump is getting closer and closer to leaving the White House. The House of Representatives has begun this Wednesday to vote the articles of the 'impeachment' against the still president of the United States. "The president should be charged and I think must be condemned for the Senate, "said the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi.
The Democrat has charged harshly against Trump whom she has not hesitated to blame for the incidents on Capitol Hill. "He incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion against our country. He must go, it's a clear danger and present for the nation ", he declared.
He has also had words for the assailants, whom he has not hesitated to describe as "domestic terrorists". In addition, he has assured that "they did not appear out of nowhere. They were sent by the president."
Despite the fact that more and more voices are calling for Trump's resignation, it does not seem that this will occur before January 20. The decision is in the hands of Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader in the Senate. Although he has been in favor of impeachment on several occasions it does not seem that he is willing to see the Senate return from an emergency.
According to The Washington Post, McConnell's refusal makes it almost impossible for the Senate to approve it before Joe Biden takes office. The change of opinion has occurred after Congressman Lindsey Graham assured that the 'impeachment' would make things worse.
Democrats are looking at all costs for the 'impeachment' to move forward, regardless of whether it is before or after January 20. The goal is not to impeach him, but to prevent him from running for office again in 2024. Once Trump is approved will be disqualified from holding public office again.
The U.S. Constitution explicitly reflects that the Senate could prevent Trump, if convicted, from returning to public life. It would be a dramatic reprimand for the man who has dominated American politics for more than five years, reformed the Republican Party and openly pondered the possibility of running for president again in 2024.
