Schumer to McConnell: Allow Trump impeachment vote



Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, is calling on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to reconvene the Senate so legislators can vote on impeaching President Donald Trump. (Jan. 12)

“McConnell claims he needs unanimous consent, the agreement of all 100 senators, but it’s not so,” the Democrat said. “I’ve asked him to call the Senate back all he needs is my agreement, I’m still minority leader, and his agreement, he’s majority leader and we can come back A.S.A.P.”

Schumer added he believes the Senate should “vote to convict Donald Trump and get him out of office now before any further damage is done.”

Impeachment ahead, the House will first try Tuesday to push the vice president and Cabinet to act even more quickly to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Democrats are set to pass a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke constitutional authority under the 25th Amendment to oust Trump.

Trump said impeachment is causing “tremendous anger” but said he wanted “no violence.”

Democratic lawmakers say Trump is a danger to democracy after the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Impeachment proceedings are set for Wednesday. Pence has shown no inclination to invoke the Constitution’s 25th Amendment.

Trump is to face a single impeachment charge: “incitement of insurrection.”
