U.S. Lawmakers Follow Through on Move to Push Trump Out

The U.S. House of Representatives will push ahead Tuesday with efforts to remove President Donald Trump from office for inciting last week’s deadly attack on the Capitol.

The Democratic-held lower chamber will vote Tuesday night on a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to expel Trump from the White House. On Wednesday, the House plans to decide whether to make Trump the first president ever impeached twice.

The chamber is expected to pass the 25th Amendment measure, which does not compel Pence and Cabinet secretaries to take action. The vice president has so far resisted calls to remove his immediate superior from the highest office in the land.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer tried to pass the resolution by unanimous consent on Monday. Republican Rep. Alex Mooney, blocked it.

The Democrats, who on Monday introduced an article of impeachment against Trump, say they have enough votes to charge the president with high crimes and misdemeanors. It is unclear how many Republicans will join the party in voting to impeach Trump.
