Donald Trump: If we win the House vote, we will start impeachment proceedings against Joe Biden

"If the Republican Party wins the elections for the US Parliament, it will begin a procedure to remove the current US President Joe Biden from power. This is what former head of state Donald Trump said," wrote Rolling Stone magazine.

According to the publication’s sources, the 45th head of state announced to leading figures from the formation that voted him to the White House (2016 and 2020) if they win a majority in the House of Representatives and the Senate (respectively the lower and upper houses of the state parliament), will start a procedure to remove Joe Biden from power, in case the Republicans win the vote for Congress.

In the words of Kevin McCarthy – a contender for the Speaker of the House of Representatives, if the Republican Party wins a majority in both the House and the Senate, its deputies will start legal proceedings to oust Biden.

A similar opinion was expressed by the representative from the state of Georgia in the House of Representatives, Marjorie Taylor Green.

On November 8, US citizens will elect 435 lawmakers to the House of Representatives. The Democratic Party, which sent out Biden, has a majority of 220 seats. Republicans have 212, and three seats are unfilled.

Americans will also elect 35 of the 100 senators. The Democrats have a total of 51 seats (48 party deputies; two independents who vote for the Democratic Party’s proposals; and Vice President Kamara Harris. Under the Constitution, the second person in the state also holds the position of Senate President).

Polls give the Republicans. They get 225 seats in the House of Representatives and 53 in the Senate.

The impeachment process of the US president is similar to a trial. The initiators bring their accusations to the acting head of state in the House of Representatives. If at least 2/3 of the 453 parliamentarians confirm the charges, they go to the Senate. The deputies of the upper house play the role of last resort and decide the political fate of the owner of the White House. The removal of the head of state requires the votes of at least 67 of the 100 senators.

So far, no president has left office as a result of a parliamentary vote. Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were acquitted by the Senate (in 1868 and 1998, respectively). Richard Nixon resigned before the House of Representatives voted to impeach him (in 1974).
