Kathmandu, Jan. 27 An indictment is being prepared against US President Donald Trump. The Democratic lawmaker is preparing to file impeachment against Trump over allegations that he caused a riot inside the parliament building a few days ago.
A Democratic leader said the proposal could be put to a vote in the lower house of parliament, the House of Representatives, by Tuesday. According to the BBC, parliamentary party whip James Cliburn has told CNN that the impeachment process could begin this week.
As the process progresses, Trump will become the first president in US history to face impeachment twice. For that, the impeachment motion must be passed by the lower house. The process will then go to the Senate, where a two-thirds vote is needed to remove the president. Lower House MP Kliburn said it was not possible for Trump to be impeached or heard before he left office in 10 days.
A mob of Trump supporters stormed a rally inside the US House of Representatives on Wednesday. Five people, including a police officer, were killed in the incident. An indictment has been filed against Trump, saying the attack was carried out at Trump’s instigation.
Seeing this, some lawmakers from his own party, the Republicans, have begun urging Trump to resign from the presidency. Second Republican Senator Pat Tummy called on Trump to resign on Sunday. “I think the best way for the country is for the president to resign and move away as soon as possible,” he said.
