House Democrats Monday introduced a resolution to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time, setting up a vote this week unless Vice President Mike Pence uses his constitutional authority to remove the president.

A majority of the Democratic-controlled House has signed on to the resolution led by Representatives David Cicilline, Jamie Raskin and Ted Lieu charging Trump with inciting the insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6th. It seeks to both remove him from the presidency and prevent him from ever holding office again.

Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told Democrats on a conference call that the House will take up the resolution Wednesday.
