    The House of Representatives started debating impeaching President Donald Trump for a second time - which would be a historic first - for inciting an insurrection just one week after the MAGA mob stormed Capitol Hill.  Trump's Republican allies did not defend Trump's behavior, but instead pitched censuring the president or launching a 9/11-style commission, more fitting punishments they argued for someone who was already leaving office.  Rep. Tom Cole, the first GOP lawmaker to speak, argued against a hasty impeachment vote 'not because of the president's inappropraite and reckless words are deserving of defense but because the presidency itself demands due process.'  Republicans also warned impeaching Trump for a second time would only make partisan hostilities worse.   'This is a reckless impeachment,' complained Republican Rep. Jason Smith of Missouri. 'This will only bring up the hate and fire more than ever before.'  Democrats described the terror of last week's...
    The House convened at 9 AM ET for the second impeachment of Donald Trump. And this time around, several Republicans are voting to impeach, after Trump incited an attack on the Capitol in an effort to block Congress from doing its job and finalizing the election results. After that attack, far more Republicans still voted to block the true election results on Trump’s behalf than will vote to impeach him, but go figure, sending a mob of insurrectionists to threaten the lives of your own vice president and members of Congress will get at least a few Republicans to admit that there’s a problem. Republicans Reps. Liz Cheney, John Katko, Adam Kinzinger, Fred Upton, and Jaime Herrera Beutler have all publicly said they will vote to impeach. “The president of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack,” Cheney, the third-ranking House Republican, said in a...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is signaling support for the House Democratic impeachment effort that includes an article charging the president with 'incitement of insurrection.' Word of the powerful Republican's posture came Tuesday as the House prepared prepared to take up an impeachment article Wednesday – with signs that several Republicans will back it.  McConnell worked successfully to scuttle the  impeachment effort during a trial last year on different charges, and follows reports that McConnell never wants to speak to Trump again after the Capitol riots that had Trump supporters invading the Capitol, trashing leadership offices, and endangering the lives of lawmakers. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell denounced Trump's election challenge in a speech last week after a mob egged on by Trump invaded the U.S. Capitol McConnell backs the effort because it will make it easier to purge Trump from the party, the New York Times reports.

    Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade appeared angry Tuesday morning while sharing reports that the vast majority of Democrats in Congress are pursuing impeachment of President Donald Trump following the terrorist attack on the Capitol last Wednesday. Kilmeade blasted Democrats for what he saw as a divisive political action while curiously overlooking how not holding Trump and his surrogates for the deadly and violent insurrection in the nation’s capital accountable is far more likely to continue deep political divisions. “You know what the theme to Joe Biden’s inauguration is? America United,” Kilmeade opened. “Do you know what thing that will guarantee that America won’t be united? Having an impeachment trial on a president that’s going to be at Mar-a-Lago.” “If you believe America works better together and has been ineffective because we’ve been at each other’s throats?” he continued. “What could be more disenchanting?” than a second impeachment trial with...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leaders have set up fast-moving floor votes that that will force House Republicans to cast votes both on President Trump's fitness for office and on whether to remove him during his final days in power. On Monday morning, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) sought to call up a resolution that would instruct Pence to convene cabinet members to declare Trump 'incapable of executing the duties of his office.' But he failed to get 'unanimous consent' when a House Republican objected. Pelosi says she will respond by bringing the 25th amendment resolution to the floor Tuesday.   Democrats also introduced their impeachment resolution, first floated Friday, accusing Trump of 'incitement of insurrection.'

    House Democrats Monday launched an effort to have President Trump removed from office, attempting to pass legislation by unanimous consent calling for Vice President Mike Pence to deem him unfit for office following the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by some of his followers.

Democrats also plan to introduce an impeachment resolution, authored by a group of Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee.
