Ukuba baya phambili, musa ukukhawulela inani lamangqina ndingathanda ukutsalela umnxeba igqwetha uMichael Van Der Veer ulumkise phambi kokuvota. Amakhulu watsho, enomsindo ngenxa yenguqu ebingalindelekanga eliye lathabatha yona ityala. ngakumbi ukuqala ngale ntsasa kwi-10.00 ixesha lendawo eWashington. Isityholo athe waxoxa ngaso sesokuphembelela uvukelo-mbuso hayi ukuba kwenzeka ntoni emva koko. Oko akunamsebenzi nokuba kwathini na kamva akunanto yakwenza nokuphembelela” uvukelo.

I-Congresswoman uHerrera Beutler, omnye wamaRiphabhlikhi ali-10 avotele ukutyhola uTrump nge-13 kaJanuwari, upapashe ingxelo phezolo eqinisekisa ingxelo yakhe malunga nencoko kaMcCarthy noTrump kwaye uthi uzimisele ukunika ubungqina. Xa uMcCarthy ekugqibeleni wamfumana nge-6 kaFebruwari kwaye wamcela ukuba abize esidlangalaleni kwaye acele ukuba uqhanqalazo luyeke, into yokuqala awayenzayo kukuphinda ubuxoki bokuba abachasayo bangenile eCapitol, utsho u-congresswoman. UMcCarthy ngokwamanqaku awathathayo emva kwencoko yabo, wamlungisa wamxelela ukuba aba bahlaseli ngabo bavelana naye.

Isigqibo somtshutshisi sokumbiza njengengqina, ebhengezwe nguCongressman Jaime Raskin, uye wamangala zonke iisenenja, kuquka iDemocrats. Abanye abantu baseRiphabhlikhi baye bayithatha njengesibhengezo semfazwe kunye nesimemo sophando olubanzi lweziganeko ngaphambi kokulawula indima yomongameli wangaphambili kwiziganeko. Singaqala ngenxa yokuba uNancy Pelosi [uSomlomo weNdlu ephantsi] uphendula umbuzo wokuba akukho nto ibonisa ukuba ubundlobongela bucwangciswe ngaphambi kwentetho kaTrump, uyaphakamisa.

Inkqubo yokubiza amangqina ibonakala inzima kwaye isoyikisa ngokwandisa isiphumo sayo ngaphaya koko la maqela mabini ayeyifuna, ukongeza kuMongameli uJoe Biden ngokwakhe, onokubona uthethathethwano lwakhe neSenethi kwisicwangciso esitsha sokuhlangula sinodaka.
