WASHINGTON (AP) – Democrats in Congress are swiftly laying plans to impeach President Donald Trump and ensure an “unhinged” commander in chief can do no further damage in his remaining days in office.
They are trying to send a message to the nation, and the world, that mob violence inspired by a White House will not stand.
This after the shocking siege of the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters left five dead.
Some Republicans are joining, saying Trump must go. Impeachment proceedings could begin in a matter of days.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she also has spoken to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff about preventing Trump from ordering a nuclear strike in his final days.
