Amidst impeachment threat, Twitter bans Trump permanently

Published by The Nation on Sun, 10 Jan 2021


Agency ReporterWith only days left in his presidency, Donald Trumpsilenced by Twitter and shunned by a growing number of Republican officialsfaces a renewed drive by Democrats to remove him from office after he incited his supporters to storm the US Capitol.House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the top congressional Democrat, threatened to impeach Trump for an historic second time unless he resigned immediately, a move the pugnacious president is unlikely to consider.Democratic members are circulating formal charges that could lead to impeachment and may introduce them in the House as soon as Monday. Pelosi has also asked members to draft legislation aimed at invoking the US Constitutions 25th Amendment, which allows the removal of a president unable to fulfil the duties of the office.Trump has done something so seriousthat there should be prosecution against him, Pelosi told CBS 60 Minutes, according to an early excerpt of the interview.Read Also: Trump: I wont attend Bidens inaugurationThe intensifying effort to oust Trump from the White House has drawn scattered support from Republicans, whose party has been splintered by the presidents actions. Democrats have pressed Vice President Mike Pence to consider the 25th Amendment, but a Pence adviser has said he opposes the idea.The odds that Trump will actually be removed before 20 January, when President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in, remain long. Any impeachment in the House would trigger a trial in the Republican-controlled Senate, which is scheduled to be in recess until 19 January and has already acquitted Trump once before.Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sent a memo to his fellow Republican senators suggesting a trial would not begin until Trump was out of office, a source familiar with the document said. A conviction in the Senate requires a two-thirds vote.Democrats will take control of the Senate later this month, after Georgia certifies two runoff elections won by Democratic challengers.Twitter permanently cut off Trumps personal account and access to his nearly 90 million followers late on Friday (US time), citing the risk of further incitement of violence, three days after Trump exhorted thousands of supporters to march on the Capitol as Congress met to certify Bidens 3 November election victory.
