Speaker Nancy Pelosi has announced House Democrats will vote to impeach Trump.
In a letter to Democrats, Pelosi wrote “In protecting our Constitution and our Democracy, we will act with urgency, because this President represents an imminent threat to both.”
She continued “as the days go by, the horror of the ongoing assault on our democracy perpetrated by this President is intensified and so is the immediate need for action.”
The first move Democrats will make is to adopt Rep. Jamie Raskin’s 25th amendment resolution by unanimous consent.
This move is certain to be blocked.
Pelosi explained “If we do not receive Unanimous Consent, this [Raskin] legislation is planned to be brought up on the Floor the following day. We are calling on the Vice President to respond within 24 hours.”
“Next, we will proceed with bringing impeachment legislation to the Floor,” she added.
