United States of America’s 45th President Donald Trump faces another impeachment making him the first US President to be impeached twice while serving.
Donald Trump faces a one charge of ‘incitement of insurrection’ this came after mob of his protesters storm the US Capitol forcefully overpowering the police into the building in protest against formalization of president-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory.
The events was recorded as the most shameful and clueless act in US history, it was reported that five people loose their life amid the protest including a police officer.
Donald Trump will be facing a trial which will be monitored by the Senates as they will be acting as jurors to either convict or acquit him.
If find guilty, Donald Trump will be remove from office of the president as his vice will emerge as the president before the inauguration of Joe Biden next week been 20th January.
According to the New York Times, it reports that the Republican Majority leader of the US Senate, Mitchell McConnell, was pleased about the move to impeach Donald Trump, speculating that Donald Trump’s party was looking to move on from him after the attack at the Capitol by his supporters.
He concluded by saying that Trump’s impeachment effort will make it easy to put him out of the party.
Before the impeachment proceeds, the House opined to Donald Trump’s vice president Mike Pence and the cabinet to uninstall Trump from power by appealing to the never-before-used 25th amendment applied by the constitution which will declare him unable to serve.
Mike Pence reportly rejected the request as the Democrats move and introduced the Article of impeachment on Monday.
It stated that;
“President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government.
“He will remain a threat to national security, democracy and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office.”
The violence which occurred in the Capitol they were said to motivated by Trump
The US National Guard members reportedly slept at the Capitol overnight ahead of today’s House session to impeach President Trump for an unprecedented second time.
Security here has tightened dramatically since last week’s deadly insurrection. The Pentagon is sending up to 15,000 National Guard members to D.C in response to credible threats of armed militias planning to move on the Capitol in the days leading up to Joe Biden’s inauguration next week.
As as of last night, the Guard members responsible for security around the Capitol were armed with lethal weapons, protective helmets, gas masks and Kevlar body armor.
The Nigerian Senate, on Tuesday, 15th December, 2020 passed for a second reading, the Bill for an Act to establish the Nigerian Peace Corps.
The Bill, which was read the first time in the 9th Senate on Tuesday, 17th December, 2019 is being sponsored by former Senate Leader and Chairman, Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume.
Leading the debate on Tuesday, Senator Ndume reminded the President of the Senate, Dr. Ahmad Lawan how the Bill was introduced and passed in the 8th Senate when he (Lawan) was the Senate leader.
“The Bill went through all legislative processes, including Public Hearing and was overwhelmingly passed. The Bill also passed through all the same necessary legislative crucibles in the House of Representatives and eventually passed”, Ndume narrated. He explained the core mandate of the Corps which seeks “to develop, empower, and provide gainful employment for the youth to facilitate peace, volunteerism, community services, neighbourhood watch, nation-building and for other related matters”.
Ndume added that, the Bill would “give statutory backing to the existing Peace Corps of Nigeria, which currently has over 187,000 members, comprising of regular staff and volunteers with well-structured network of branches in 36 states of the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory”.
He stressed that, the Peace Corps of Nigeria, which came into existence in 1998, is an incorporated body by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC). “Based on its laudable achievements over the years, the Peace Corps was accorded Federal Government recognition, through the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development.
On the international scene, the Corps was equally granted a Special Consultative Status by the African Union (AU) and the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC)”, Ndume added. He urged his colleagues to support the Bill, saying, “the Nigerian Peace Corps, when established, beside engaging millions of our unemployed youths on permanent basis, has the capacity of complementing the functions of conventional security agencies in the areas of developing its members as supporting agents of social order by providing a second-line of public safety”.
Senator Ndume explained that the issues raised by President Muhammad Buhari as reason for withholding assent to the Bill in the 8th Senate had already been addressed in the new Bill. The Senate leader, Senator Abdullahi Yahaya, while seconding the Bill, urged his colleagues to give accelerated passage to the Bill, since it had already gone through the rudiments of lawmaking at both chambers in the 8th National Assembly.
The Bill had no objections. President of the Senate, Lawan, who presided over Tuesday’s plenary, therefore, referred the Bill to the Senate Committee on Interior, for further legislative actions.

Members of the US electoral college have begun casting their votes in a process that will see Joe Biden formally designated president-elect.
The Democrat won November’s contest with 306 electoral college votes to Republican Donald Trump’s 232.
Under the US system, voters actually cast their ballots for “electors”, who in turn, formally vote for candidates weeks after the election.
Despite this process, President Trump is not expected to accept the result.
Normally the electors do not get that much attention, but this year, due to Mr Trump’s persistent efforts to question and overturn the results – involving legal challenges which have been rejected by courts across the country – the state-by-state vote is in the spotlight.
Vermont, New Hampshire, Indiana and Tennessee were among the first states where electors gathered in capitals (or in Washington DC) on Monday to formally cast their votes.
The number of electors per state is roughly in line with the size of the population. California has the most electors and they will vote at 17:00 Eastern time (22:00 GMT).
That vote is expected to push Mr Biden over the 270-vote tally required to win the presidency.
When the voting process is complete, the results will be sent to Washington. They will be formally counted in a joint session of Congress on 6 January presided over by Vice-President Mike Pence.
Joe Biden plans to address the nation on Monday evening after the electors have voted, his transition team has announced.
In Michigan, legislative offices in the state capital Lansing were closed on Monday due to “credible threats of violence” ahead of the electoral college vote, taking place in the state Senate.
Members of the electoral college – who cast one vote for president and one for vice-president – almost always vote in line with whoever won the popular vote in their state. Some rogue electors are known to diverge but analysts say there is next to no chance that Mr Biden’s victory could be overturned.
Last month, President Trump said he would leave office in January if Mr Biden were certified the election winner. But in the lead-up to Monday’s vote he has continued to make unsubstantiated claims of election fraud.
The quadrennial meeting of the US electoral college is usually a formality along the way to a presidential inauguration – a vestigial political event that long ago lost its power and relevance.
Donald Trump’s scorched-earth strategy of contesting the results of the 2020 election, however, has given the proceedings new attention.
Although his legal team has had little success in challenging the results of the vote in multiple battleground states, the official recording of the electoral college ballots across the US will effectively lower the curtain on these long-shot judicial manoeuvres.
That doesn’t mean the Trump team is giving up, of course. It’s holding alternative electoral college proceedings with an alternate set of votes that will declare the president the real winner. They’ll continue with futile court challenges and, eventually, ask Congress to overturn the election results.
It’s an alternative reality that Donald Trump’s supporters may find more comforting than the one where Joe Biden is president-elect.
Given that the House of Representatives is controlled by Democrats, the official electoral college tally will have been duly certified by the states on Monday and federal law is on Mr Biden’s side. Mr Trump’s chances of success in the real world, however, sit squarely at zero.
