U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to hold a briefing on Thursday, one day after pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol building as Congress met to count the electoral college votes that would officialize Joe Biden’s presidential victory.
The joint session of Congress finished the count early Thursday morning, with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris receiving 306 electoral votes and Donald Trump and Mike Pence receiving 232.
Pelosi’s briefing comes amid calls from some lawmakers, including Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, for Trump’s removal from office. Some have called for this through impeachment, while others have asked for the 25th Amendment to be used. Pelosi has yet to give comment on this but is likely to face questions on the issue.
