Article of impeachment against Trump to be introduced Monday in House

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vows to move forward with
impeachment if Trump doesn’t resign

The House has reached 185 co-sponsors for an article of
impeachment against President Trump, and the chamber
plans to introduce the measure Monday, the office of Rep.

David Cicilline, D-R.I., tolld Saturday.
That’s the vast majority of the 222-person
Democratic caucus in the House.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other Democrats
have called on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the
25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, or for the
president to resign.

“It is the hope of members that the president will
immediately resign,” Pelosi said in a statement Saturday
after an hours-long phone call with Democrats on
impeachment. “But if he does not, I have instructed the
Rules Committee to be prepared.”

It’s unlikely that impeachment would make it through both
the House and the Senate by Jan. 20, when President-elect
Biden is inaugurated.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., has called for Trump to be
removed through the 25th Amendment, the first GOP
member of the House to publicly do so.

frequent Trump critic Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., has said he
would “definitely consider” impeachment articles if they
were brought forth.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, became the first Republican
to call on the president to resign Friday, and said Trump’s
leadership of the GOP leaves her questioning whether to
remain in the party.

“I want him to resign. I want him out. He has caused
enough damage,” Murkowski said in an interview with the
News Men.

“I think he should leave. He said he’s not going to show up.
He’s not going to appear at the inauguration. He hasn’t
been focused on what is going on with COVID,” she said.
