With the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden a week away, the House of Representatives quickly debated and voted to impeach President Trump again, this time in response to the storming of the U.S. Capitol last week by a mob of his supporters hoping to overturn the election.

National guardsmen have taken up posts inside the Capitol.
