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.

A rather bad man dies and meets Satan in a room with three doors. Satan explains, "I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that you have to spend eternity behind one of these doors. But, the good news is that you can take a peek behind each and take your choice."

So, the man opened the first door and saw a room full of people, standing on their heads on a concrete floor. Not very nice, he thought.

Opening the second door, he saw a room full of people standing on their heads on a wooden floor. Better, he thought, but best to check the last door.

Upon opening the last door, he saw a room full of people, standing waist-deep in excrement and sipping coffee.

"Of the three, this one looks best," he said and waded in to get something to drink while Satan closed the door.

A few minutes later the door opened, Satan stuck his head in and said, "Ok, coffee break's over, back on your heads!"
