The US House of Representatives voted almost along party lines on Tuesday to call on Vice President Mike Pence, to invoke the 25th Amendment of the Constitution to remove President Donald Trump, from office just eight days before his term ends on January 20.
Earlier, Vice President Mike Pence, told House leaders he does not support invoking the 25th Amendment process to remove Trump.
Speaking from the Mexico border wall in Texas, Trump says that discussion of invoking the 25th Amendment “is of zero risk to me but will come back to haunt Joe Biden and the Biden administration.”
House Democrats are leading the charge to remove Trump either through the 25th Amendment or impeachment.
Trump faces a single impeachment charge: “Incitement to insurrection.”
Several Republicans have said they will vote to impeach him.
Trump privately blamed “Antifa people” for the attack on the US Capitol on January 6, despite clear evidence the overwhelming majority were his supporters, according to Axios Media report.
