After President Trump voted to impeach the House on Wednesday, President-Elect Biden said the chamber held the president “accountable” and the Senate on impeachment, along with “other urgent business” – as well as “constitutional responsibilities.” Told to do.
“Today, in a bipartisan vote, the House voted to hold President Trump accountable and vote,” Biden tweeted hours after voting 232-197 “to incite rebellion.” “Now, the process for the Senate is underway — and I hope they will deal with their constitutional responsibilities on impeachment, while also working on other urgent business of this nation.”
Several supporters pushed for a second Trump impeachment when a crowd of his supporters stormed the Capitol on 6 January, in an unsuccessful attempt to block Biden’s certification of an Electoral College victory.
