Washington — The House is debating the impeachment of President Trump ahead of a final vote on Wednesday afternoon, a week after a violent mob of Trump supporters attacked the Capitol. If it passes, Mr. Trump will be the first president in American history to be impeached twice.

The resolution includes a single article of impeachment accusing the president — who has just days left in office — of “incitement of insurrection,” and says he “gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government.”

“We know that the president of the United State incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion against our common country,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, beginning two hours of debate split evenly between parties. “He must go. He is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love.”
