The US House of Representatives is expected to take up a vote to impeach President Donald Trump Wednesday, pending the outcome of its vote on the 25th Amendment Tuesday at 7:30 p.m ET. The call to impeach the president focuses on what role Trump played in relation to the attack on Capitol Hill last week, which resulted in five deaths

The siege on the Capitol came Jan. 6 after Trump spoke to followers in Washington, D.C., at a gathering in support of the false assertion that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump. A joint session of Congress confirmed President-elect Joe Biden as president, a formality presided over and announced by Vice President Mike Pence. Following the events of the day, Trump’s Twitter account, among other social media accounts, has been permanently suspended.

Trump’s term ends in eight days, with Biden taking office Jan. 20, but some lawmakers on both sides are adamant about removing Trump from office now, warning he is a threat to America. “The situation of this unhinged president could not be more dangerous,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote in a statement to colleagues.

Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer both called on Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment last week. On Monday, 217 House co-sponsors released an article of impeachment. If Pence doesn’t respond to the House’s request to invoke the 25th Amendment, Pelosi has said she will bring the impeachment article to a vote.
