WASHINGTON (AP) — A majority of the U.S. House has voted to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time, just a week after he encouraged loyalists to "fight like hell" against election results — a speech that was followed by a mob of his supporters storming the U.S. Capitol. The House vote on an article of impeachment for "incitement of insurrection" is still underway.  Actual removal seems unlikely before the Jan. 20 inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would not agree to bring that chamber back immediately, all but ensuring a Senate trial could not begin at least until Jan. 19. Still, McConnell did not rule out voting to convict Trump in the event of a trial.

The House Judiciary Committee is holding hearings on racial profiling and policing following the killing of George Floyd. The hearings follow congressional Democrats unveiling legislation that would amount to major reforms for the nation’s police departments.


U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky announced he will not seek re-election in 2020. 

The northwest Indiana Democrat has served as the representative for Indiana’s 1st Congressional District for 35 years. But he announced Wednesday he was retiring. 

In his statement, Visclosky did not give a reason why, but did highlight some of his work to build support for organized labor and invest in northwest Indiana.
