The House of Representatives is in session, but Republicans aren’t going anywhere.
The House is set to reconvene on Thursday for a vote on whether to impeach President Donald Trump.
Democrats, however, are holding a rally at the Capitol that is calling for impeachment.
What are the top demands?
A number of House Republicans are demanding that Trump resign, and they are pushing to hold a special impeachment hearing to determine whether he committed obstruction of justice, or committed a crime.
They are also calling for the removal of Justice Department officials involved in investigating the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.
The lawmakers want to know whether Trump broke the law when he fired FBI Director James Comey.
Trump, for his part, said on Monday that he does not believe he has been impeached, despite the House Republicans’ efforts.
“No one has been indicted, no one is going to be indicted.
And I don’t think the Democrats have a clue,” Trump said.
In a statement on Monday, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) accused Democrats of trying to “use the president’s impeachment to delegitimize our president.”
“Republicans are not a party of obstruction,” McCarthy said.
“They are a party that works for the American people and their constitutional rights.”
The Republican House majority is comprised of some of the most conservative members in Congress, including House Speaker Paul Ryan (R), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D, Md.).
However, the group has had mixed success in impeaching the president.
The last time Congress voted to remove the president from office was in 1804, when Republicans held the Senate majority.
Republicans held control of both houses of Congress at the time, but Democrats controlled both houses.
The next president could use that time to impece Trump, but it could take years before that happens.
