The U.S. House took a step Jan. 12 toward impeaching President Donald Trump for the deadly Capitol attack, taking time only to try to persuade his vice president to push him out first. Trump showed no remorse for his part in the uprising of Jan. 6, saying instead that his role in it was “totally appropriate.”

Already scheduled to leave office by Jan. 20, Trump is set to become the only president in history to be impeached twice. The impeachment charges him with “incitement of insurrection” in his speech at a rally ahead of the Capitol attack. Some politicians in his party are still championing the falsehoods he has spread about election fraud.

Three Republicans, however, including third-ranking House GOP leader Liz Cheney of Wyoming, announced they would vote to impeach Trump.

“The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack,” said Cheney in a statement. “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.”

As lawmakers reconvened at the Capitol for the first time since the attack, they were also bracing for more violence ahead of Democratic President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20. (AP)
