The opposition Democratic-controlled US House of Representatives moved to impeach President Donald Trump Monday, though he is in his final days in office. The House Democrats accused him of inciting an insurrection after last week's storming of the US Capitol in Washington, D.C.
The 4-page impeachment resolution said President Trump has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security, democracy and the Constitution, if allowed to remain in office.
The House could vote in the next day or two on the impeachment resolution, but it is unclear whether House leaders would immediately send it to the Senate for trial, given that the President will soon be out of office.
President Trump has not publicly commented on the effort to impeach him a second time.
At last Wednesday's rally near the White House, President Trump told several thousand people, “If you don't fight like hell, you're not going to have a country anymore.”
The president himself spent the two months since the election, spreading unfounded claims that he really won the election and not President-elect Joe Biden.
The largely white mob that walked to the Capitol quickly overwhelmed police there storming inside, breaking windows, ransacking some Congressional offices and scuffling with security officers in an effort to stop the certification of the Electoral College votes.
Dozens of Trump supporters have been arrested. Five people died in the mayhem, including a police officer.
The British government launched an ambitious coronavirus vaccination plan on Monday. The goal is to have 15 million citizens vaccinated by the middle of next month. The health department has said the plan is to have 2,700 vaccination sites around the country.
