On Monday, Democratic Party officials filed a request for impeachment against President Trump, accusing him of inciting a rebellion – culminating in the invasion of the United States Capitol last week.

This is the second impeachment request against Trump made by House Democrats, who in December 2019 accused the president of forcing Ukraine to investigate Biden – at the time, the request was approved by a majority of the House , But did not proceed because the Republican-controlled Senate voted against it.
