House Dems Could Begin Trump Impeachment Process ‘As Early as Mid-Next Week’

If Vice President Mike Pence is unwilling to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove President Donald Trump from office, House Democrats are prepared to begin impeachment proceedings.

Rep. Katherine Clark, the assistant House speaker, told CNN on Friday she believes Democrats could vote as “early as mid-next week.”

She argued, “Donald Trump needs to be removed from office and we are going to proceed with every tool that we have to make sure that that happens to protect our democracy.”

Clark called every day Trump is in office “a day of grave danger” and accused Trump of inciting a “seditious mob” to riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Watch the video below:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) joined other Democrats on Thursday in calling on Pence to remove Trump from office, as IJR previously reported.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) became the first Republican to support the idea of invoking the 25th Amendment.

“I call for the vice president and members of the Cabinet to ensure the next few weeks are safe for the American people and that we have a sane captain on the ship…It’s time to invoke the 25th Amendment and end this nightmare,” Kinzinger said in a video he posted to Twitter on Thursday.

He added, “The president caused this. The president is unfit and the president is unwell. And the president now must relinquish control of the executive branch voluntarily or involuntarily.”

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) weighed in on whether he would consider articles of impeachment, as IJR previously reported.

“The House, if they come together and have a process, I will definitely consider whatever articles they might move, because as I’ve told you I believe the president has disregarded his oath of office,” Sasse said during an interview on “CBS This Morning.”

He continued, “He swore an oath to the American people to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. He acted against that.”

    1. Why what? Why impeach His Majesty?

      How about to stop him damaging this country any more than he already has.

      He is the first president since WW2 to finish his term with worse jobs numbers. He has never had an approval rating abover 50%. He has changed his religious affiliation away from an established church to non-denominational because he has been influenced by so many evangelicals, such as wacko Paula White, but he did this to falsely appeal to Cult-45 (it has worked). He has the deaths of more than 375,000 Americans on his hands as a result of his mishandling of a national/universal pandemic. He has egged on domestic terrorists to the point that the Capitol Building has been attacked for the second time in its history, with four more dead, including a policeman. He has divided this country, in a number of ways, more severely than any president in my lifetime. He has literally destroyed what used to be the Republican party and tried to replace it with a fascist party only loyalty to him. It is now eating its own. He is handing out pardons as if they are favors, including to a number of war criminals or friends/associates.

      Need I go on? I don’t call THAT “winning”. Do you, Dave?

    1. The people who broke into the Capital Building showed their lack of intelligence, once again, by not wearing a mask and by broadcasting a description of and evidence of their crimes. They are being arrested now.

    2. Bernie…you may want to rethink that statement about Dems being of lii oh w intelligence. The attempted coup was like those videos of dumb crooks, smiling into the camera. Was it stupidly that made them think they wouldn’t be recognized??

  1. All I am going to say is, Donald J Trump was right.
    Why? The politicians on both sides hate this man so much that they are going to try to remove him from office when he only has days left. To me that right there is enough to say the election was rigged. Rigged on purpose and the ones who did are the ones that are doing this right now.

    I sure hope that the GOP if they even cared at all for the people, do the exact same thing and bring it back on to the dems ten fold.
    You have shown who you really are and you do not represent the American people but your own selfish egotiscal reasons.

    1. “To me that right there is enough to say the election was rigged.” Arthur

      To you, maybe, Arthur, but that’s because you won’t accept the truth and you are grabbing for ANYTHING that you think resembles a lifeline. You can’t accept the reality of your cult leader honestly losing – badly.

      However, there IS a way out for you. Help your party find and elect a real, honorable Republican and put your best man forward for the majority of Americans to elect as president. That man was never Dear Leader, obviously, so look for someone better next time.

      Sound reasonable?

      1. General Confusion… that names suits you perfectly. Cult leader…seems the same could be said about you.

    2. Arthur, you are so right and so is President Trump and everyone knows it. Just another one of the communist lefts distractions, so many coming at us at once. We WILL NOT cave and let them win. It will only make us stronger for the long fight ahead. You can bet your ass that there are going to be millions more people paying more attention to what’s going on and be more involved so that the communist won’t be able to steal another election. Count on it.

  2. What a holes. Great way to bring the country together. You worked for 4 years to bring Trump down, you proud of yourselves? Got a newsflash, working at getting the old guard out of the Republican party as well as making sure Biden/Harris is a 4 year administration as millions will. It’s a whole new world.

    1. And we succeeded Betsy Boop. The voters are tired of the drama, lies, and anti democracy antics of Mafia Don and booted his ugly orange face out the door. Yipeee!!

  3. Good Lord. These people are deranged. How much money are they going to waste on this frikkin’ charade when the man has less than two weeks left in office. They have learned nothing at all from what happened on the 6th. The peasants on both sides of the aisle are revolting and it’s only a matter of time before BLM, MAGA, Antifa, and all of the other aggrieved groups realize that the common cause of all of our suffering is the bourgeois in Congress. When that finally happens, and if Congress doesn’t change their ways it’s gonna, there may not be a Capital building left. I seriously think they are purposely fomenting a civil war. Idiots.

  4. And let’s not forget the reason Trump was even elected. 8 years of Obama was enough “democracy” for the American people, so someone who was not fit to be president was elected. Do you think the next 4-8 years will be any different? This president elect is not fit to be president either. Find someone who is fit AND bi-partisan and you will see this country come back together.

    1. Fortunately, we still have the ballot box, Julie. Dear Leader and his American Fascist Party were not able to get rid of them (yet).

  5. aren’t these the same people who kneel and kissed the BLM riot leaders this past summer…
    just a little bit of double standard ya think…

        1. You wouldn’t know the truth if it bit you in your saggy butt dear Judeee. I so enjoy the 💩 posted by trumpturds.

  6. when I was a kid the freak shows were in the circus…. now they live in DC and call themselves democrats… do they ever shut the hell up… just for once… its the me..me…me… crowd

  7. Right. I believe that. The liberals are still playing partisan to deflect from their own complicity. There have been plenty of seditious statements from the liberals these past four years. Start with Maxine Waters.

  8. This problem (it if is indeed a real problem) will resolve itself in two weeks. It will take longer than that for you clowns in Congress to even agree on what you want to do. Why not pay attention to something that you might be able to affect? Or is it too much of a temptation to pontificate for the TV cameras?

  9. So instead of important business try this again? Idiots.

    They should have had this outrage during tg he riots and looting.. instead of kneeling.

  10. Give it a rest and tone down the rhetoric. U make him a martyr and democrat congressman will die. Just stupid

    1. Jim your statement sounds like a threat on someone’s life ? is that what you intended ?

    2. Oh the rhetoric is already high due to the traitorous rioters vandalizing the People’s House.
      The Constitution defines treason as levying war against the government and aiding and abetting its enemies.
      Trump needs to be tried as a traitor and dealt with as such.
