House Democrats are set to vote on an article of impeachment for President Donald Trump for inciting an insurrection on the US Capitol. As House members began to debate on Tuesday evening, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee released a 50-page report outlining the imminent need for Trump to be impeached and removed from office. Even though Trump is set to leave office on January 20, Democrats contend that he poses an "imminent threat" to the nation's safety. "The timeline of events demonstrates that President Trump encouraged and incited the violent and seditious acts that occurred. Moreover, the lawlessness that resulted from President Trump's conduct was entirely foreseeable by the President," the report says.

The House Judiciary Committee released a report Tuesday making the case for imminently impeaching Trump after he "willfully incited violence" at the US Capitol. Among other "impeachable conduct," the report claimed Trump "threatened the safety of the three most senior officials in the presidential line of succession" — Vice President Mike Pence, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and President pro tempore of the Senate Sen. Chuck Grassley. The House is planning to vote Wednesday morning on an article of impeachment for President Donald Trump for inciting an insurrection on the US Capitol.

Democrats moved forward on an impeachment vote after a effort to persuade Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to remove Trump was rejected by Pence on Tuesday evening. Republican leaders in the House did not urge their members to vote against impeaching Trump, saying it was a matter of individual conscience. At a meeting to set the rules for Wednesday’s impeachment vote, Democratic Representative David Cicilline told the House Rules Committee that the impeachment drive had the support of 217 lawmakers - enough to impeach Trump. Democrats could also use an impeachment trial to push through a vote blocking Trump from running for office again. Rather than a two-thirds vote, a simple Senate majority is needed to disqualify Trump from future office.

On Sunday, NBC News confirmed that Pence and Trump still had not spoken.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two senior House Democrats overseeing aviation issues urged the head of the Federal Aviation Administration on Monday to work with U.S. airlines to prevent civil unrest from jeopardizing safety, according to a letter seen by Reuters. On Saturday, Dickson vowed to take “strong enforcement action” against unruly passengers following reports of supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump disrupting flights returning from Washington. Alaska Airlines said on Friday it banned 14 passengers from future travel after “unacceptable” behavior on a flight from Washington to Seattle. U.S. Capitol Police are temporarily posting officers at DC-area airports to ensure lawmaker safety, a U.S. official said on Saturday. There have been numerous videos posted of unruly behavior on Washington flights, including one American Airlines flight to Phoenix in which the pilot threatened to divert “to the middle of Kansas and dump people off.”

Robert Bauer, an author of the book “After Trump: Reconstructing the Presidency” and a senior adviser to the Biden campaign, hinted that the incoming administration’s support would have its limits. “We have to reconstruct some norms that have been damaged, but the idea is to strike a balance so that reform is effective without undermining a strong presidency,” he said. But pressure is building to address the systemic weaknesses revealed by the Trump years. But Mr. Trump’s conduct proved that many of those changes — and longstanding checks and balances dating to the constitutional convention — relied more on tradition and shame than on enforceable law. “The reforms then have been demonstrated not to be enough,” said Max Stier, the chief executive of the Partnership for Public Service, a nonpartisan group.
