The US House of Representatives has backed a resolution calling for a constitutional amendment to be used to remove President Donald Trump from office before his term ends.
Trump is accused of inciting rioters at the US Capitol last week.
The request from the Democrat-controlled House now goes to Vice President Mike Pence.
But he has already ruled out applying the 25th amendment to declare Trump unfit for office.
