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.

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
