Invalid EmailDonald Trump could become the first US President ever to be impeached twice during his term of office. Democrats in the House of Representatives are moving to impeach Trump in the wake of last week's storming of the Capitol as members were certifying Joe Biden's election victory. They were hoping Vice President Mike Pence would invoke the 25th Amendment, which would have required Pence and the majority of cabinet leaders to formally inform Congress' leaders that Trump is unfit to serve. However, Pence replied on Tuesday saying he did not believe such action would be in America's best interests with eight days left of Trump's presidency. Several high-profile Republicans have declared their support for the move spearheaded by Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives. However, if the vote is passed today it doesn't mean Trump will be removed from the White House before Joe Biden's inauguration next week. What is impeachment?

A vote in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives - the lower chamber of Congress and the equivalent to the UK's House of Commons - is the first part of the process. It requires a majority of of 50%+1 to pass and be passed to the upper chamber, the Senate. There, President Trump will either be convicted or acquitted. What is Donald Trump accused of?

He is accused of prompting last week's Capitol Hill riot as Congress certified the Electoral College votes that confirmed Biden as the US's 46th president and Kamala Harris as the next Vice President. Speaking to his supporters outside the White House before they descended on Capitol Hill, Trump told them to "fight much harder" as he repeated his lies about the election being stolen from him, and if they "don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore". Five people were left dead by the storming of America's seat of Power, including a police officer. What does Donald Trump say about impeachment?
