WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump was impeached by the U.S. House for a historic second time Wednesday, charged with "incitement of insurrection" over the mob siege of the Capitol in a swift collapse of his final days in office.

With the Capitol secured by armed National Guard troops inside and out, the House voted 232-197 to impeach Trump. The proceedings moved quickly, with lawmakers voting just one week after violent pro-Trump loyalists stormed the U.S. Capitol after the president's calls for them to "fight like hell" against the election results.
