United State House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has stepped up the pressure on Vice-President Mike Pence to act to remove President Donald Trump from office over his role in last week’s storming of the Capitol.
Lawmakers are expected to bring up a resolution asking Mr Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to declare the president unfit for office.
Report says Vice President Pence is said to oppose the idea.
If he refuses, Democrats will vote to impeach Mr Trump who had allegedly urged supporters to march on the Capitol.
The Republican president has been accused by Democrats and an increasing number of Republicans over the riot, following a rally in which he repeated unsubstantiated allegations of vote fraud.
Five people died in the attack, including a Capitol police officer.
Meanwhile, President Trump has made no public statements since he was banned from several social media platforms – including Twitter.
He is due to leave office on twentieth of this month when Democrat Joe Biden will be sworn in as president.
