Donald Trump has become the first US President to be impeached twice.
On Wednesday, the Democrat-led House of Representative began debate on a single article of impeachment, accusing the president of inciting the violence that led to protesters storming Capitol Hill.
A protestor and a Capitol Hill officer died in the riot.
Trump’s impeachment could prevent him from seeking reelection in 2024. But that’s only if the Senate convicts him in an impeachment trial after he leaves office, which has never happened before.
Trump is set to leave office on January 20th.
No sitting or ex-president has ever been convicted in a Senate impeachment trial, which requires a two-thirds majority.
But if the Senate convicts Trump during a trial later this year it could then vote to disqualify him from serving in a future federal office.
