The broadcaster also says that Trump would be disappointed to think that his allies did not defend him. enough. In this afternoon’s vote, ten of the 211 Republican parliamentarians voted in favor of impeachment.

Trump is accused of “inciting insurrection” for encouraging his supporters to march in Washington, when Joe Biden’s election was made official, in protest against the election results. The protest ended with the invasion of the Capitol and the death of five people.

Local newspapers say since the 7th that the president is considering granting early presidential pardon to himself and his three children to avoid future investigations and convictions.
