The House is now in session and will begin impeachment proceedings

The US House of Representatives has just convened and will now begin consideration of President Trump’s impeachment.

The impeachment resolution the House will vote on today charges Trump with a single article, “incitement of insurrection,” for his role in last week’s deadly Capitol riot.

The first debate is expected to last about an hour and will revolve around the rules governing the impeachment article.

After that, the House will vote on the rule.

Remember: Voting in the House takes time because of coronavirus protocols and now lawmakers also have to pass through metal detectors to get onto the House floor.

Trump is now staring at the shameful distinction of being impeached by the House of Representatives twice in just over a year – the only president in US history to be impeached twice.

Even if he’s impeached today, Trump will stay in office and likely finish out his term,  because it takes a Senate conviction to remove him even after he’s been impeached.
