Following the invasion of Capitol Hill by supporters of President Trump in a bid to prevent certification of the 2020 presidential election, some members of the United States House of Representatives have kicked off impeachment process.
The supporters of Mr. Trump on Wednesday invaded the building following an inciting address by President Trump.
Alexandria Ocasio Cortex of New York on Thursday announced that some members of the House have drawn the article of impeachment to commence the process of impeaching Trump.
It would be recalled that Trump was impeached in 2019 but was subsequently acquitted by the Senate.
According to Ms Cortez, the Article of Impeachment was prepared and finalised by Ilhan Omar, a Somali born lawmaker who Trump has repeatedly attacked in the past.
Cortez tweeted, “Articles of impeachment have already been drafted and are ready for introduction. They were prepared and finalized by @IlhanMN while she was extracted in a secure location, and members are signing on.”
Earlier, Cortez called on the US Cabinet to trigger the 25th Amendment that will remove Mr Trump from office.
