At least three Republicans said they would join Democrats in voting to impeach President Donald Trump over the attack on the U.S. Capitol, as Vice President Mike Pence rejected calls to use a constitutional maneuver to oust him. With eight days remaining in Trump’s term in office, the House of Representatives was poised today to pass an article of impeachment accusing the Republican President of inciting insurrection. Trump’s iron grip on his party showed further signs of weakening as at least three Republicans, including a member of the House leadership, said they would vote for his historic second impeachment. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, and two other Republican House members, John Katko and Adam Kinzinger, said they would also vote for impeachment.
