House set to vote on second Donald Trump impeachment on Wednesday

Overnight, the House called on Vice President Mike Pence to strip President Donald Trump of his power, but the vice president had already informed the House that he wouldn't invoke the 25th Amendment. CNBC's Eamon Javers reports. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:

The House of Representatives is expected to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday afternoon for an unprecedented second time, after Vice President Mike Pence rejected using the 25th Amendment in a bid to to remove Trump from office.

The Democratic-led House is moving to charge Trump with “incitement to insurrection” for stoking the mob attack on the Capitol that left five people dead, including a police officer, and disrupted lawmakers from confirming President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

The House convened Wednesday morning to discuss rules and began debate on the article of impeachment at around 12:30 p.m. ET. Lawmakers are expected to vote on the article at around 3 p.m.

There is little doubt about the outcome, with Trump almost certain to go down in U.S. history as the only president to be impeached twice. More than 210 lawmakers have co-sponsored the article of impeachment and several Republicans, including Rep. Liz Cheney, have expressed their support.

Trump was impeached the first time in December 2019 for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress for his attempt to pressure Ukraine to investigate the Biden family. The Republican-controlled Senate voted to acquit him.

How and when the Senate will vote this time is less clear. The upper chamber is in recess, and it requires unanimous consent to bring the body back. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reportedly believes Trump committed impeachable offenses, and at least two GOP senators have called on Trump to resign.

Amazing how fast and how much effort Mitch and pelosi has put into rallying everyone around this 2nd impeachment rather than COVID relief

The house representatives have broken many laws over the last 4 years. Sedition is the repeating law that is being broken. Don't agree, look up the term and remember that the president of the united states is an authority.

When you have plenty of hatred and few ideas, I guess your only option is to stir up the partisan mob. So much for bringing the country together.
They did not work for the people. They were negligent in their duties. They need to be fired.
And this is how you bring the country together!

Holy crap, I actually agree with Pence on something?
Look how fast they move for themselves. Tyrants.
It is so nice to hear politicians speaking so highly of The Constitution. Lets hope this trend continues, lets hold them to their Oath of protecting and following the rules of The Constitution.
Imagine if the government could move this fast in passing a ban on job outsourcing.
Amazing how slow the stimulus package moved through, you know... that life saving money to help feed Americans. But as soon as the word impeachment gets thrown around everyone actually does their job. The vote happens within days. Hypocrisy at its finest
One day voters from both sides will realize they got played into believing the government had their best interest at heart.

Yes let’s waste more of our taxpayer money. We need term limits and to get rid of everyone in Congress, regardless of political affiliation.
I'm reminded of the fable about a man who was concerned about the dangers of a trip he was about to take who visited a psychic to check his fate. The psychic told him she foresaw his death, so he cancelled his trip. He then met his death at home which he would have avoided if he travelled.

There has to be something they can do with the exorbitant amounts of money we pay those congresspersons other than waste time impeaching someone that is already leaving office in a week.

He is leaving office in 7 days so this is moot they cannot get it through the house and senate in time. Stop wasting American tax payers money and work for the people and not your own parties whims.

For all those asking why Trump needs to be impeached when he’s already gonna end his term soon?
Because the future needs to know that when a president invokes an insurrection, there will be consequences to his actions. To set an example of what happens when you cross the line.

Politically, and otherwise, I predict that things are going to go very badly for those who voted to impeach. The evidence will come out, and not at all on their terms.

a bill is being introduced to ban any public bldgs or airports from being named after trump. Damn they are thinking of everything, gotta love it
Might be a better idea to just leave the whole thing alone until his fraudulence takes the oath.
Yeah, let's go ahead and vote on impeaching Trump on Inauguration day. Took y'all the entire 4 year term to finally decide on that? God damn.

On Jan 6th, we almost celebrated Pence's homegoing service or pleading for his release from abduction, had Trump took the bold stand to prevent the insurrection and give Pence a " you aiight bro", text message or phone call.
But thanks to the almighty God for the law enforcement officers who risked their lives to save him and others in that building on that day, in just the right time.

Karla Barnes:
How do you get impeached twice. Look it didn’t work the first time so I think the American people need to set limitations on Congress, Senators, and every official office. Impeach ask for the resignation of everyone who continues to allow our freedom of speech to be undermined!
Great job!!!👏🏾👏🏾 8 days or not. Accountability is a must in order to prevent this mess from happening again. No coddling Trump or his enablers.
