The move by many is seen as a symbolic act of rejection by Congress, as the possibility of the measure passing before Trump leaves office on Jan. 20 are very slim. According to VOA News, the time it would take for such articles to clear the house and then the Senate, assuming the Senate even approves them, would be more than the 10 remaining days Trump has in office.

Nonetheless, members of Congress such as Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), want to do their best to push the measure through. "Our business is to impeach, basically an indictment. Our vote is our voice, and our vote is a voice of disapproval."

"It does not mean the House shouldn’t do its business. Let’s do the people’s work and then the Senate will decide," continued Clyburn.

Trump was previously subject to articles of impeachment in Feb. of 2021, but the effort to impeach him was not successful at the time. The Senate voted 52-48 in favor of acquitting him.
