Lawmakers are debating an article of impeachment on Wednesday accusing President Trump of inciting the January 6 attack on the US Capitol building. A vote on the impeachment resolution charging the president with “high crimes and misdemeanors” is expected sometime Wednesday afternoon, according to reports. President Trump was acquitted on two articles of impeachment in 2020.
The Senate will not convene until next week to hold a trial for the president, according to a spokesperson for Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Six Republican members of Congress have announced plans to vote to impeach Trump. On Tuesday, Speaker Pelosi named nine House impeachment managers for Trump’s Senate trial. Vice President Pence said on Tuesday that he will not invoke the 25th Amendment at the House’s urging.
