The impeachment resolution is the first step by Democrats to hold an impeachment vote this week, so that Trump becomes the first president in history to be impeached a second time.

"In all of this, President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government. He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coordinate branch of government," the document reads.

As we reported earlier, US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the House would move forward on Monday with a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence and the cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment, and wrest the powers of the presidency. She called on Mr. Pence to respond “within 24 hours” and indicated she expected a Tuesday vote on the resolution.
