The US House of Representatives began impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump on the 13th local time.
The US House of Representatives, which opened at 9 am local time, continues to be debated by lawmakers over an impeachment bill initiated by the Democratic Party.
The House of Representatives will vote on the impeachment bill as soon as the debate closes.
Earlier, on the 6th, the Democratic Party initiated an impeachment prosecution that applied the charges of “inciting civil war” to President Trump, asking President Trump supporters to be responsible for the invasion of the Capitol.
In the House of Representatives, out of 435 seats, the Democratic Party occupies 222 seats, and some Republican lawmakers have expressed their sympathy, so it is expected that the impeachment bill for President Trump will pass smoothly.
If the impeachment bill passes, President Trump will become the first U.S. president to pass the impeachment bill twice during his term in office following the impeachment of the House of Representatives in late 2019 related to the Ukrainian scandal.
