COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - With only days remaining in President Donald Trump’s term, lawmakers are debating whether to impeach the sitting president before President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.
Many in Congress are mulling whether to impeach the sitting president and Senator Tim Scott (R-South Carolina) believes a vote to impeach Trump will do more harm than good.
“President Trump has eight days left in his term and has promised a smooth and peaceful transition of power,” Scott said in a statement issued Tuesday. “The Democrat-led impeachment talks happening in the House right now fly in direct opposition to what President-elect Joe Biden has been calling for all year. An impeachment vote will only lead to more hate and a deeply fractured nation. I oppose impeaching President Trump.”
Members of the House are expected to debate and vote on a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence and the U.S. Senate to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.
