“President Donald Trump is on the verge of being impeached for a second time, the House planning the unprecedented vote one week after he encouraged a mob of loyalists to ‘fight like hell’ against election results and the U.S. Capitol became the target of a deadly siege. While the first impeachment of Trump last year brought no Republican votes in the House, a small but significant number of leaders and other lawmakers are breaking with the party to join Democrats on Wednesday, unwilling to put American decency and democracy at further risk, even with days remaining in the president’s term.”
“The stunning collapse of Trump’s final days in office, against alarming warnings of more violence ahead by his followers, leaves the nation at an uneasy and unfamiliar juncture before Democrat Joe Biden is inaugurated Jan. 20. ‘If inviting a mob to insurrection against your own government is not an impeachable event, then what is?’ said Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., a drafter of the articles of impeachment. Trump, who would become the only U.S. president twice impeached, faces a single charge of ‘incitement of insurrection'” – AP.
