The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, have aired their opinion on the impeachment of US President Donald Trump.
Trump was impeached last night with ten Republican party members joining Democrats to facilitate the proceeding against Trump for inciting a mob against the US Capitol.
Hailing the impeachment, Pelosi said it shows no one is above the law.
“Today, in a bipartisan way, the House demonstrated that no one is above the law, not even the president of the United States,” Pelosi said before signing the document.
“That Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our country and that once again we honor that oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help us God.”
McConnell who reacted to the impeached stated that there won’t be a trial in the Senate before President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in.
“There is simply no chance that a fair or serious trial could conclude before President-elect Biden is sworn in next week,” McConnell said in a statement shared on Twitter.
“Even if the Senate process were to begin this week and move promptly, no final verdict would be reached until after President Trump had left office.
“This is not a decision I am making; it is a fact,” he wrote.
