Article of impeachment will be brought against Trump on Monday

Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu has confirmed that the Article of Impeachment seeking to remove Donald Trump from office will be introduced to the House during a pro-forma session on Monday.

Lawmakers are moving to impeach the president for “inciting an insurrection at the Capitol”. 

There are now 180 co-sponsors to the article, the congressman said on Twitter.

If passed by the Democratic-controlled House, which is all but certain, Mr Trump will be the first president ever to be impeached twice. 

He has just 11 days left in office.

Since Wednesday’s attack on the Capitol by pro-Trump rioters, calls have been mounting for the removal of the president.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on Vice President Mike Pence and the cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution and remove the Mr Trump from office that way. 

Failing that Ms Pelosi said the House would move forward with articles of impeachment — drafts were already being written by Democrat lawmakers as they sheltered from the rioters in safe rooms or barricaded in offices.
