US House of Representatives opens Trump impeachment session

The US House of Representatives opens its session to impeach US President Donald Trump for “incitement of insurrection” over the deadly Capitol riot last week by his supporters.

After a one-hour procedural debate and vote, US lawmakers will gather for another two-hour debate and vote on the impeachment.

If passed, Trump will become the first president in American history to be impeached twice.

According to CNN, the impeachment vote will be held around 3 p.m.-4 p.m. Washington time (11 p.m.-midnight in Israel).
