Trump has come under bipartisan fire for his role before, during and after the riots. Every leading national Democrat and some Republican leaders have called for Trump to resign before his term officially ends Jan. 20, and Democrats have already drafted an impeachment article against the president.
On Monday, House Democrats introduced a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Trump.
Republicans objected to the resolution and blocked any immediate consideration. The House will reconvene Tuesday at 9 a.m., and a full roll-call vote will be held on the resolution, which is expected to pass in the Democrat-controlled House.
After that, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Pence will have 24 hours to respond before the House would proceed to impeachment. A vote could come Wednesday, but Pence has already said he would not attempt to remove Trump.
No articles of impeachment were introduced Monday during the House session, which barely lasted 10 minutes.
Pelosi is recalling lawmakers to Washington for votes.
