Earlier, Legit.ng reported that members of the United States House of Representatives on Wednesday, January 13, gathered to debate an article of impeachment against Trump.
The lawmakers will debate the impeachment resolution to charge the American leader who has less than one week in office with "incitement of insurrection."
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi speaking at the beginning of the debate said Trump must go as they know he incited this insurrection, adding that he is a clear and present danger to America.
In a related development, the US House passed a resolution seeking the removal of President Trump under the 25th Amendment.
The resolution was made during the House sitting on Tuesday, January 12, in what appeared to be a largely symbolic act leading to the impeachment of the president for the second time.
The non-binding resolution, which passed at 223-205, saw members of the House overwhelmingly split along party belts, with only one Republican backing the move.
