Resolution for Trump impeachment introduced in US Congress
WHAT / dpa
Trump would be the first US president in history to have two impeachment proceedings opened. He leaves office with the swearing-in of his Democratic successor Joe Biden on January 20th. In addition to impeachment, the draft resolution also provides that Trump should be banned from future government offices. This would deny him a possible candidacy in 2024. Therefore the impeachment process would be more than a symbolic step for the history books.
The two-thirds majority in the Senate that is necessary to convict Trump is not in sight, even if resentment about Trump is growing among Republicans. In the first impeachment proceedings, the Republicans in the Senate acquitted Trump in February 2020.
