UPDATE with more details: It has only been 13 months since the US. House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump due to abuse of power in the Ukraine telephone scandal and the Russia investigation. He was acquitted in a senate trial weeks later. Not that there has been much news here or around the world since then, but the Democrat-controlled House will meet on Wednesday to vote on a new article of impeachment against POTUS 45.
This time, the House is voting to impeach Trump on the grounds of “inciting insurgency” for his role in last week’s attack on the Capitol. It would be the first time that a US president has been impeached twice. If convicted by the Senate, Trump could be banned from serving in public office.
