A brief session in the House of Representatives on Monday morning also saw the Democrats attempt to unanimously pass a motion calling for the 25th Amendment to be used to immediately remove Mr Trump from office.

Democrats and Republicans alike have accused Trump of leading an insurrection against his own Capitol.

Republicans blocked House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer from fast-tracking a resolution urging Pence and Trump's Cabinet to use the 25th Amendment to oust Trump. This resolution to impeach Mr Trump will be voted on by the House of Representatives this week.

The Senate could hold a trial after the inauguration, even though Mr Trump would no longer be in the Oval Office at that point.

If Pence no act to remove Trump, as most experts expect, di House go begin debate on Wednesday on di article of impeachment wey dem file today accusing Trump of inciting insurrection.

Pence has given no indication he is ready to proceed on such a course, which would involve invoking the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, including a vote by a majority of the Cabinet to oust Trump before he leaves office on January 20. However, removal of a president under impeachment procedures requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate in addition to approval from the House.

The never-used 25th Amendment of the US Constitution allows the vice president and the Cabinet to remove a president deemed unfit to do the job.

If Pence does not invoke the amendment, Democrats are planning to hold a vote to impeach Trump.

The resolution notes that the "insurrectionary mob" at the Capitol had "threatened the safety and lives of the vice president, the speaker of the House and the president pro tempore of the Senate", chanting "Hang Mike Pence" and "Where's Nancy?" during the attack.

Trump's immediate resignation "is the best path forward", Republican Senator Pat Toomey told CNN on Sunday, adding, "That would be a very good outcome".

Trump has made baseless allegations of widespread voter fraud and challenged the results of the election for months.

"That's what has to happen now", she said. Citi's head of global government affairs, Candi Wolff, said in a Friday memo to employees, "We want you to be assured that we will not support candidates who do not respect the rule of law".

"Let's give president-elect Biden the 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running".

Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse said he would take a look at any articles that the House sent over.

Forty-three percent said Trump should not be thrown out of office, according to ABC/Ipsos, which surveyed 570 people between January 8 and January 9. Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a frequent Trump critic, said he would "vote the right way" if the matter were put in front of him.

House Democrats were expected to introduce articles of impeachment on Monday. Trump will become the first president ever to be impeached twice. That would allow President-elect Joe Biden to focus on other priorities as soon as he is inaugurated January 20. Pence's office did not respond to questions about the issue.
