The attempt to remove Donald Trump from the presidency led to another political crisis, which will not be reflected in the best way in Joe Biden’s early days in the White House.
As News Front reported, Trump supporters staged protests in Washington last week against the recognition of a rigged election. The action ended with the storming of the Capitol. Although Trump criticized the actions of the protesters, Democrats still used the incident to impeach the president again.
The day before, the US House of Representatives still approved a resolution to impeach Trump. The document was supported by 232 legislators, including 10 Republicans, and 197 opposed.
The further fate of this campaign will be decided in the Senate. The confrontation will be fierce, writes Reuters. Given that the Democrats launched the procedure a few days before Biden’s inauguration, Trump’s resignation under impeachment may occur after the 46th president takes office.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already signaled that a quick trial will not be possible. Biden begs the Republican Party to avoid delaying the procedure, anticipating a highly resonant political crisis.

“I hope that the Senate leadership will find a way to deal with their constitutional impeachment duties, as well as deal with other urgent matters in this country”, – the Democrat said.
