This is VOA news. Via remote, I'm Liz Parker. U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi spoke to lawmakers Sunday about the efforts to remove President Donald Trump from office. The speaker said the House would first vote on a resolution this week, calling on Vice President Mike Pence and the cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment. If not, the House will move toward impeachment. The House is set to vote on Monday or Tuesday on a resolution urging the 25th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which allows the vice president and the cabinet to remove the president if he is unable to discharge his official duties. Pelosi added that (after the House) after that the House "will proceed with bringing impeachment legislation to the floor.” The opposition Democrats say President Trump should be held accountable after last week's violence at the U.S. Capitol. Wednesday's lawlessness came after President Trump spoke at a rally of his supporters where he encouraged to head to the Capitol in a futile effort to block Congress from certifying the Electoral College in favor of President-elect Joe Biden. Five people died, including a Capitol Hill police officer who was involved in a scuffle with protesters.

Two Republican senators, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, have called for President Trump to resign. The president has told advisers he does not plan to do so. The President and the White House have also remained silent on the possible impeachment. The White House says the president is scheduled to visit the U.S. state of Texas on Tuesday to highlight his administration's work on the border wall.
