The House of Representatives is moving toward a vote to make Donald Trump the first US president to be impeached twice, as a number of Republicans announced they will vote for the impeachment.

Iran Press/America: House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said the chamber plans to send an article of impeachment to the Senate immediately, though the chamber may not have enough time to remove Trump before President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.

President Donald Trump, a man hyperaware of his achievements and place in history, will add a first to his record on Wednesday.

Seven days before the president leaves office, the House plans to charge him with high crimes and misdemeanors for inciting an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week. Trump will become the first president impeached by the chamber twice.

The president’s behavior in the 13 months since the first impeachment has left House Democrats making a more clear-cut case than the first time around, CNBC reported.

The four-page article of impeachment the chamber will vote on Wednesday argues Trump fed his supporters months of false claims that widespread fraud cost him the 2020 election, then urged them to contest the results before they marched to the Capitol and disrupted Congress’ count of President-elect Joe Biden’s win.

"He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coequal branch of Government. He thereby betrayed his trust as President, to manifest injury of the people of the United States," the House’s charging document reads.

After the insurrection that killed at least five people, including a Capitol Police officer, Democrats have argued allowing Trump to serve out his term both lets him dodge consequences and raises the prospect of more violence before Biden’s inauguration. Still, Congress may not have enough time to push the president out of office before next week.

Seven House Republicans have said that they would vote to impeach Trump, but the vast majority of GOP representatives will oppose the effort.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Wednesday that Trump bears responsibility for the riot but called impeachment a mistake without an investigation or hearings.
