Minnesota Democratic Party member Ilhan Omar said she was preparing documents to launch the impeachment proceedings against incumbent US President Donald Trump. She announced this in her Twitter account.
The American leader may leave office ahead of schedule – by January 20. “Donald Trump must be dismissed by the House of Representatives and expelled from office by the US Senate. We cannot allow him to remain in office, ”said Omar.
Earlier, Trump supporters clashed with police near the Capitol in Washington. Protesters broke into the building and surrounded the Senate Hall. The Senate and House of Representatives have suspended a meeting, which was planned to approve the results of the electoral college, according to which Democrat Joe Biden won the presidential election. Later, one of the protesters was shot in the chest in the building of the American Congress. Trump himself has called on supporters to act peacefully and support the police.
