RITA FOLEY: This "AP News Minute." Impeachment proceedings against President Trump begin in the House of Representatives on Wednesday. Trump faces one charge-- incitement of insurrection stemming from the Capitol attack. At least five Republicans say they will vote to impeach the president.

On Tuesday night, the House approved a resolution urging Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment. This would set up a cabinet vote on removing Trump from office. Pence has said he won't do it.

President Trump says the push to force him out of office is dividing the country and that he wants no violence. However, he denied any responsibility for the attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Dozens have been arrested in the Capitol attack. Most face misdemeanor charges. A federal prosecutor says some could be charged with sedition, effectively accusing them of trying to overthrow the government. Rita Foley, the "Associated Press," with "AP News Minute."
