House GOP members have objected to a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office following last week’s U.S. Capitol riots.
House Democrats introduced an article of impeachment on Monday. Rep. Alex Mooney, R-West Virginia, objected to it.
The article of impeachment called for Pence to intervene “within 24 hours” and if the president does not resign, the House will move as early as Wednesday to consider the impeachment resolution on the floor.
More than 210 Democrats have signed for the impeachment, just short of the majority of the House. GOP party leaders are opposed to the impeachment, despite reports that several Republicans are said to be considering voting to impeach.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she would bring the bill up for a full vote Tuesday if the resolution was blocked.
The House will move forward with a full vote on the resolution Tuesday, The New York Times has reported.

Special Counsel continues to beg Judge Chutkan to ‘muzzle Donald Trump’
Special counsel Jack Smith continues to ask U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan to silence former President Donald Trump by any means necessary ahead of an October 16 hearing on a proposed gag order.
Smith’s original request was unsealed last week, prompting Trump to respond on social media platforms and interview, which Smith’s office says bolsters their case to place a gag order on Trump.
In a 22-page filing, senior assistant special counsel Molly Gaston said prosecutors rejected Trump’s claims that their proposed gag order was an attempt to silence him on the campaign trail. Rather, she said, it was an effort to prevent him from trying to make “use of his candidacy as a cover for making prejudicial public statements about this case.”

“[T]here is no legitimate need for the defendant, in the course of his campaign, to attack known witnesses regarding the substance of their anticipated testimony,” Gaston wrote.
“[N]o other criminal defendant would be permitted to issue public statements insinuating that a known witness in his case should be executed,” Gaston wrote. “This defendant should not be, either.”
