Congress to vote on removing Trump from office

Washington Correspondent

The US Congress is debating a move calling for the removal of Donald J Trump from office under the 25th Amendment, which declares that the emergency “has come to our doorstep, it has invaded our chamber”.

One Congresswoman described how she’d been forced to escape the mob which stormed the Capitol, asking: “Is gunfire in the Speaker’s lobby a new normal that you’re willing to accept?”

Predictably there have been no regrets from Donald Trump. Instead, he claimed these moves were causing “tremendous danger”.
