Description:

Democrats said that President Donald Trump should be impeached for "inciting sedition" Wednesday and some Republicans in Congress are privately discussing his removal, according to sources.


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called on Vice President Mike Pence to remove Donald Trump from office by invoking the 25th Amendment, saying that if he does not act 'the Congress may be prepared to move forward with impeachment'.
