Impeachment articles will reportedly be brought forth tomorrow:
BREAKING: Speaker Pelosi confirms impeachment will move forward tomorrow unless trump resigns or is removed using the 25th Amendment— Scott Dworkin (@funder) January 11, 2021
Apparently they've been trying to give enough time for the cabinet to invoke the 25th or for Trump to choose to resign:
This sequencing by @SpeakerPelosi is correct. Impeachment is one of the gravest powers of Congress. It should always be our last option. If @POTUS doesn’t resign or if @VP doesn’t invoke the 25th Amendment, then we will Impeach.— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) January 11, 2021
Tomorrow we introduce the Article of Impeachment. https://t.co/gvI6lS8HMW
It seems both of those options have been dismissed after a 48 hour period when one or the other seemed possible.
What are your thoughts? Good? Bad? Unnecessary?
Edit: He has now been officially impeached by a vote of 232-197. Note that this does not mean he's been removed, as that requires further action by the Senate.
