The House moved to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday for inciting the attack on the U.S. Capitol last week. Some House Republicans said they would vote to impeach Trump. The House plans to charge him with high crimes and misdemeanors for inciting an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week. Trump will become the first president impeached by the chamber twice. “He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coequal branch of Government. He thereby betrayed his trust as President, to manifest injury of the people of the United States,” the House’s charging document says.
Congress may not have enough time to push the president out of office before next week. The House will send the article across the Capitol immediately, it’s expected. No Senate Republicans have yet said they will vote to remove Trump. The president has not taken any responsibility for the Capitol invasion. Trump would become the first president in history to be impeached twice.
