US house speaker Nancy Pelosi has shared with lawmakers plans to remove president Donald Trump from office before starting an impeachment process.
The House of Representatives would vote on a resolution calling on vice-president Mike Pence to remove Mr Trump’s presidential powers.
If this move fails, democrats will introduce a charge of “incitement of insurrection” against Mr Trump over his role in the storming of the capitol.
The first vote could happen today.
On Sunday, Ms Pelosi wrote to lawmakers outlining plans for a resolution to formally request that vice-president pence invoke the 25th amendment.
The move would allow Mr Pence to become acting president and remove Mr Trump from the white house.
Mr Trump has made no public statements since he was banned from several social media platforms – including twitter – on Friday.
