The moving trucks for President Trump are coming to the White House, the only question is what day they will arrive. The Democrats in the House are trying hard to get them there before the scheduled Inauguration Day of January 20, and Tuesday and Wednesday will see a flurry of activity from the Dems in trying to humiliate, and potentially oust Trump.
Tuesday evening, the House will take vote on a resolution from Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-MD, which calls on Mike Pence to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump. It’s expected that that vote won’t happen until late on Tuesday. “The House will next take up the Raskin legislation in regular order to call upon the Vice President to activate the 25th Amendment to remove the President,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said after Republicans objected to the passage of the Rankin resolution via unanimous consent. “We are further calling on the Vice President to respond within 24 hours after passage. As our next step, we will move forward with bringing impeachment legislation to the Floor. The President’s threat to America is urgent, and so too will be our action.”
Don’t expect Pence to take part in this however, and if he refuses to use the 25th Amendment, the impeachment plan goes into full gear on Wednesday morning.
Democrats are confident they will have the votes to impeach Trump, on the grounds of “Incitement of Insurrection.” On top of almost all of the Democrats in the House who will vote for impeachment like they did in 2019, there are a few Republicans who might vote with the Dems. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., has been very outspoken against the president over the years.
A report by Punchbowl News on Tuesday reported the number of Republicans voting for impeachment could be in the double figures.
The only thing guaranteed is this. The final days of Trump’s presidency will be just as tumultuous as all the others.
