U.S. Capitol riot: Trump faces 2nd impeachment as presidency nears end

Warning: This video contains violent content. Discretion advised. U.S. President Donald Trump is facing down his second impeachment of his presidency as his term comes to an end after House Democrats formally filed a single charge of ‘incitement of insurrection’ against him following last Wednesday’s riot by pro-Trump supporters at the Capitol building. It’s part of a two-pronged effort as Democrats also introduced a resolution calling on Vice-President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, though Republicans blocked the initial attempt Monday, forcing it to a floor vote Tuesday. If Pence does not do so within 24 hours, impeachment will proceed.
