Donald Trump facing history.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives is expected to vote on the President's impeachment for "inciting insurgency" after his supporters attacked the Capitol on January 6.

The Democrats, who are in the majority in the House, have received the support of half a dozen elected Republicans, including Conservative No.3 Liz Cheney.

Donald Trump should therefore become the first American president in history to be


(indicted) twice during his tenure.

Impeachment is far from certain, however: a trial should be organized in the Senate, probably after January 20, and the Democrats will need the support of 17 Republicans to condemn the US president.
