The House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump over the violent siege at the US Capitol last week by a mob of his supporters, lawmakers voted Wednesday on a single charge-- incitement of insurrection. Trump is the first President to be impeached twice. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said in a note to his fellow Republican senators that he is undecided on whether President Donald Trump should be convicted if the House votes to impeach him.
President Donald Trump says he opposes violence in a statement read on the House floor as members debated impeaching him for his role in fomenting the violent insurrection at the Capitol last week. Trump's message was read Wednesday by GOP Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio.
Historic art that breaks the fourth wall and engages viewers directly has been unveiled in Rome. "Breaking the Fourth Wall" is a dramatic device in which the character of a book, movie, or play addresses the audience directly. Ironically, there are no real viewers, as Italian museums remain closed due to pandemic restrictions.
