Democrats Formally Submit Impeachment Article Against Donald Trump

The Democrats have formally introduced an article of impeachment against Donald Trump, which could see him removed from office before his term ends on January 20.

David Cicilline, the representative for Rhode Island's first district, tweeted: "Just landed in Washington where I will be introducing an article of impeachment against the President for Incitement of Insurrection at 11am."

Then, Congressman Ted Lieu shared a picture of the document, writing: "The Article of Impeachment: Incitement to Insurrection, drafted by Rep @davidcicilline, @RepRaskin, me & @HouseJudiciary staff, has now been formally introduced at the House pro forma session today."

Trump has been charged with a single impeachment article: "Incitement of insurrection."

Furthermore, while they may only take a matter of days from Trump's presidency, they could also preclude him from running for public office in future.

Trump is the only US President in history to be the subject of two impeachments. A vote on whether to impeach Trump could be heard by the middle of this week.

This latest move to impeach Trump comes after the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued an ultimatum to Vice President Mike Pence asking him to invoke the 25th Amendment of the US Constitution in order to remove Trump and become president himself.

The 25th Amendment allows for the president to be removed if he is deemed 'unfit' to hold office.
