Donald Trump’s conduct leading up to and during the deadly riots at the US Capitol has drawn widespread backlash among hundreds of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, as congressional leaders demand his Cabinet invoke the 25th Amendment and remove the president — or face a second impeachment process.

Calls to remove the president from office in the final days of his administration have grown since a violent mob of Trump supporters attacked Congress on Wednesday as it convened to certify the results of the 2020 elections.

The mob spurred a nearly six-hour delay in the vote certification, which went on to officially declare President-elect Joe Biden the next commander-in-chief. But Mr Trump’s speech in Washington just before the riots, in which he urged his supporters to march to the Capitol, and his video during the mob which was said to have added fuel to the fire, have both sparked demands for his immediate removal.

A growing chorus of Republican and Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives and Senate have called for Mr Trump’s impeachment, with some going as far as calling for the 25th Amendment — the process in which a majority of the Cabinet votes to remove the president. Here is a list of the more than 230 lawmakers on Capitol Hill calling for Mr Trump’s impeachment (The Independent will continue to update this story):
