Donald Trump will be the only US President to face impeachment motion twice

Republicans would also join Democrats to impeach Trump. Trump has been impeached earlier also this is the second time an impeachment motion has been moved against him just seven days before he is due to leave the office and President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan 2021.


A vote of the House majority to impeach would trigger a trial in the still Republican-controlled Senate, although it was unclear whether such a trial would take place in time to expel Trump from the White House.

WhenVice President Mike Pence rejected an effort of the Democrats to persuade him to invoke the 25th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to remove Trump. The Democrats had to move forward with an impeachment motion.


"I do not believe that such a course of action is in the best interest of our Nation or consistent with our Constitution," Pence said in a letter Tuesday evening to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.


Earlier this week, Facebook and Instagram have banned US president Donald Trump ‘indefinitely’ due to his efforts to incite violence in the US capital this weekTrump was banned from all the major social media platforms for inciting violence, spreading false claims of election fraud, and for inciting the angry mob that stormed the US Capitol Hill.


At least five House Republicans, including Liz Cheney, a member of her party's leadership team, said they would vote for his second impeachment - a prospect no president before Trump has faced.


"There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution," Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, said in a statement.


Trump "summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack" on the Capitol, she said.
