The House of Representatives on Wednesday voted 232-197 to make Donald Trump the first U.S. president ever to be impeached twice, formally charging him with inciting an insurrection just a week after a violent mob of his supporters stormed the Capitol. This report produced by Chris Dignam.
After violent demonstrations by outgoing US President Donald Trump's supporters at US Capitol in Washington DC briefly halted the certification process of President-elect Joe Bien, the Congress reconvened in both House of Representatives and Senate to resume the counting of electoral votes. Democrat Senator from New Hampshire, Cynthia Jeanne Shaheen, said, "For the sake of our great country and America's standing in the world, I ask my colleagues to fully endorse the result of free and fair election. We should be venerating peaceful transfer of power." Condemning the mob violence, Minority Leader in House of Representatives and Republican Kevin McCarthy said, "We are all Americans first, we should also think for a moment what we put on social media. What we convey to one another just because you have an opinion different than mine. We should all stand together in condemning the mob."
U.S. law enforcement is investigating whether a woman took a laptop computer or hard drive from U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office during the siege of the Capitol and tried to sell the device to Russian intelligence, according to a court filing.

During her weekly news conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday that if it is found that members of Congress were accomplices to the insurrection at the the Capitol last week, actions may need to be taken beyond Congress.
Now that U.S. President Donald Trump has been impeached for a second time, the Senate will hold a very different trial than the last one as it enters uncharted territory to consider whether to bar him from future office. This report produced by Chris Dignam.
