The House of Representatives is convening Wednesday to vote to impeach President Trump on one count of incitement of insurrection, one week after a mob of the president's supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building in an effort to block Congress reaffirming President-elect Joe Biden's victory, APA reports citing The Sky.

The article of impeachment, introduced Monday by House Democrats, accuses Mr. Trump of "willfully inciting violence against the government of the United States" in violation of his constitutional oath and duty. If the House approves the measure, which it is expected to do, Mr. Trump will be the only president in U.S. history to be impeached twice.
