As Washington awoke on Thursday to the realisation that it had impeached the third US president in American history, the capital remained racked with uncertainty about what will come next in an impeachment process defined by almost total partisanship and rancor.
The two most powerful figures in the US Capitol, the Democratic House speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Republican majority leader in the US Senate, Mitch McConnell, almost immediately engaged in a huge showdown over who will have control over the impending congressional impeachment trial of Donald Trump over his dealings with Ukraine.
The president seized upon Ms Pelosi’s comments quickly, and went as far as to suggest – falsely – in a tweet on Thursday that Democrats would “lose by default” if they don’t show up for his Senate trial.
But, Mr Trump’s misinformation aside, there remains a lot of work to be done before the impeachment saga is concluded.
She then runs towards the bride and appears to try to hit her as she continues hysterically shouting.
The drama unfolded in Mexico City, Mexico, according to local reports.
In the northeastern state of Assam, a register has already been compiled, ostensibly to weed out illegal immigrants. It resulted in about 1.9 million people, half of them Muslim, who thought that they were Indian citizens being left off the register after failing to provide the right papers. They are now effectively illegal immigrants with nowhere to go.
The government of Narendra Modi plans to extend the exercise in the whole of India. Critics of the register and the citizenship law fear that many of India’s 200 million Muslims could face a similar fate to those in Assam who have been rendered stateless.
The votes were mostly on party lines, with no Republicans backing impeachment and only three Democrats breaking ranks to vote against. Another Democrat, presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard, voted ‘present’.
Trump seized on the results at the rally, saying: ‘So we got – every single Republican voted for us. Woaahhh. Wow. Almost 200. We didn’t lose one Republican vote. And, and, three Democrats for us.’
