Timeline for impeachment of Trump in the U.S. Congress has been announced

Members of the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the impeachment of incumbent President Donald Trump next week. This was reported by CNN correspondent Jim Sciutto on his Twitter account.

“The White House will impeach President Trump by the middle of next week if he is not removed by the vice president and the Cabinet,” the report said.

Earlier, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to the constitution to remove incumbent U.S. President Donald Trump from power.

It was previously reported that Trump had been discussing his own preemptive pardon with his entourage in recent weeks.

On January 6, supporters of incumbent U.S. President Donald Trump stormed the building of the U.S. Congress, interrupting the session at which they were to approve the results of the past election. Four people died as a result of the incident. Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser ordered a curfew. According to the latest reports, charges have been filed against 55 participants in the siege.
