Donald Trump likely to be impeached if he does not resigns immediately
New Delhi : House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California on Friday announced that the house will proceed to impeach President Donald Trump over his alleged role in inciting the violence at the US Capitol if he does not resigns 'immediately' from his post.
“Today, following the president’s dangerous and seditious acts, Republicans in Congress need to follow that example and call on Trump to depart his office — immediately,” she wrote. “If the president does not leave office imminently and willingly, the Congress will proceed with our action.”
Pelosi also claimed that she has spoken with the American military to take preventive measures about “preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes.”
A spokesman for Milley, Col. Dave Butler, confirmed that the two had spoken and said the general had “answered her questions regarding the process of nuclear command authority.”
The letter from Pelosi came as momentum for impeachment was rapidly growing Friday among rank-and-file Democrats across the party’s ideological spectrum, and a handful of Republicans offered potential support.
