Democrats and a few Republicans say Trump must be removed immediately after he egged on a violent mob of supporters a week ago who then stormed the Capitol. The insurrection happened as some of Trump's GOP allies were challenging his election defeat, echoing the president's false claims that there was widespread fraud in his loss to Democrat Joe Biden.

But many Republicans argue impeachment is divisive and will not unite the country in this trying time.

Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, one of Trump's most vocal defenders, said Wednesday Democrats "have an obsession" with impeaching President Trump.

"It's always been about getting the president, no matter what," Jordan said on the House floor.

He said Democrats are really out to "cancel the president and anyone who disagrees with them." And he warned that "cancel culture will come for us all."
