WASHINGTON (Reuters) – US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told lawmakers late Sunday evening that they would vote earlier this week on a resolution asking Vice President Mike Pence and the cabinet to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Pelosi urged Pence to vote on Tuesday or Tuesday to implement the 25th Amendment of the US Constitution if unable to discharge his official duties, which allows him and the cabinet to remove the president. . Pelosi said that after that the House would “move to bring the law of impeachment to the ground”. As of late Sunday night, 210 House members have cited impeachment measures or nearly a majority of the House.
