Representative Democrats of the House of Representatives last Wednesday blamed President Donald Trump for the violence in the US Parliament House and brought a motion of impeachment on him. The House of Representatives, dominated by Democrats, is likely to vote on Wednesday.
After the motion was tabled, prominent leader in the House of Representatives Stanny Hoyer said that Trump would be the first Republican president to face impeachment twice if the motion is passed. On the other hand, opposing the proposal, Republican MP Alex Moon said the House should reject it.
Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi said before drafting charges in Parliament that we must take immediate steps to protect our Constitution and democracy because the Constitution is threatened by President Trump.

Since Parliament is not in session, its view may be objected. Pelosi will propose before the entire House on Tuesday. Pence and the cabinet will have 24 hours before the impeachment proceedings to pass it.
