The House of Representatives is on the verge of impeaching President Trump for the second time, with Republicans in both chambers of Congress are split on whether to support the effort in the tumultuous final days of the Trump presidency.

Trump is on the verge of becoming the only president in history to be twice impeached. Five Republican lawmakers, including third-ranking House GOP leader Liz Cheney of Wyoming, announced they would vote to impeach Trump.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also supports Democrats’ move to initiate impeachment proceedings against Trump and is “done” and “furious” with him, sources familiar told Fox News.

The House voted late Tuesday to pass a resolution urging Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office.

The vote (223-205) was seen as symbolic because Pence has already said he would not take the action.
