The House of Representatives has voted 232 to 197 to impeach US President Donald Trump, the first US president to be impeached twice, formally charging him with inciting an insurrection. In the Senate, Republicans still have control until two newly elected Democrats from Georgia take their seats and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, who will wield the tiebreaking vote in the 50-50 chamber, is sworn in alongside Biden.

It's the possible schedule if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sends the articles of impeachment to the Senate soon.

He is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love".

Now he'll have to do so while a Senate grapples with the impeachment trial of his predecessor. He said it would be best "if Congress and the executive branch spend the next seven days completely focused" on a safe and orderly transfer of power to the incoming Biden Administration.
