it's just. plain important role. for. ringback the the. democrats begin moves to impeach president trump accusing him of inciting violence against the u.s. government. hello i'm barbara starr you're watching al-jazeera live from london also coming up defying humanitarian warnings the u.s. prepares to brand the yemens who the rebels as terrorists. indonesian recovery crews pieced together the wreckage and their hunt for clues as to what caused
10:01 pm
a passenger jet to plummet into the sea. extremely busy with communities especially now you called it. with so many people dying of coronavirus in south africa funeral homes are running out of coffins. thank you for joining us the u.s. house of representatives as introduced an article of impeachment against president donald trump it charges him with inciting supporters to stage an attack on capitol hill last week there were crowds also submitted a resolution calling for trump's cabinet to declare him unfit for office and remove him but the session was adjourned within minutes following an objection to that motion from the house republican well to bring us up to date on all the developments we have alan fischer standing by outside the white house 1st though
10:02 pm
let's go to heidi show castro who joins us now from capitol hill is so how do you where do we stand now with these proceedings and crucially what happens next. barbara the most immediate pending item is this resolution calling on vice president mike pence to invoke the 25th amendment which would immediately remove trump from office citing him unfit to serve now that resolution as you said was delayed it today by a house republican it will return to the floor of the house tomorrow for a full vote but even if it passes it will still be up to pence to decide whether or not to act on it this is a non-binding resolution and pence has already signaled that he with be opposed to taking action to prematurely remove trump from office given that his time in this term is only 9 days before the inauguration of joe biden but nancy pelosi the house
10:03 pm
speaker is giving pence this opportunity 24 hours she says to make good on this resolution if and once it passes tomorrow and if he does not then there's still the article of impeachment that is also pending this morning that was submitted in brightening to the house clerk and it reads that president would be charged with one article for inciting insurrection violence against the u.s. government now there are a growing number of supporters for this impeachment charge the vast majority of democrats a growing handful of republicans in the house as well if it does move forward then president trump would be the only president in u.s. history to be impeached twice while in office asperse crucial to all of this is how most republicans feel about it do we get the sense that there is enough support from republicans to actually impeach the president. well reportedly there is enough
10:04 pm
there's numbers wise that democrats still control the house and they would have the numbers alone to impeach the president which is a key was in him formally charging him with that article but then the process would move over to. to the senate and the interesting thing is with the timing as it is there is no way a senate trial could even begin before trial leaves office on january 20th and so we're looking at the possibility of the former president returning to capitol hill for his impeachment trial sometime in the near future if that happens but we do know that there are 17 senate republicans that would need to vote to convict the president at least to have said that he should immediately resign barbara what is your caster with the latest from capitol hill heidi for the moment thank you let's go to alan fischer now who joins us from the white house so allan as we were hearing efforts are definitely ramping up to remove president trump from the white

10:06 pm
trump nothing at all from the white house and then an interesting way to start your last fool week in the white house with the house of representatives talking about possible impeachment and quite an interesting i guess last week of joe biden being president elect because of course his inauguration is coming up what has he been saying about the whole situation and the possible impeachment of trump. will he receive this 2nd in vaccination for. he made some very brief remarks said that donald trump is not fit to be in office he was asked if he was looking forward to his inauguration and worried about whether or not it was a sight he was looking forward to as you would expect expect and not what he'd about it being outside the toll but there is some can say on the f.b.i. and monitoring actions online suggest that there could be some sort of violent protest 1st of all this coming weekend and then on inauguration day itself january
