Democrats begin 2nd Trump impeachment process, introduce measure in House

Democrats begin the process of impeaching US President Donald Trump for a second time if Vice President Mike Pence and the cabinet do not remove him from office.

Democrats introduce a resolution calling on Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment of the Constitution and remove Trump from the White House.

Pence has given no indication he is ready to proceed on such a course.

Republicans block an immediate vote on the resolution and Democrats follow up by introducing an article of impeachment of Trump for “incitement of insurrection” over his role in Wednesday’s storming of the US Capitol.

“President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of Government,” the legislation says.
