Trump impeached after Capitol riot in historic second charge


President Donald #Trump was #impeached by the #US House for a historic second time, charged with "incitement of insurrection" over the deadly mob siege of the US #Capitol in a swift and stunning collapse of his final days in office.

Here's the latest for Wednesday January 13th: Trump impeached after Capitol riot in historic second charge; McConnell is undecided on impeachment vote; Trump urges 'NO violence' ahead of inauguration; Historic art breaks the fourth wall.
The aftermath of the riot on Capitol Hill has left Donald Trump increasingly isolated, in both the political and financial spheres. Deutsche Bank is reportedly cutting ties with the outgoing president - and the Trump Organization - after decades of business, while corporate donors are turning away from his Republican supporters. 
The Professional Golf Association has pulled their 2022 championship tournament from President Trump's Bedminster golf course in the wake of the riot at the Capitol. Aired on 01/11/2021.
Security has been bolstered around the US Capitol, following serious concern over a breach that led to a mob of Donald Trump supporters storming the building earlier this week. More than 6,000 National Guard troops will be in Washington DC, where a state of emergency has been declared until the day after Joe Biden's inauguration later this month. Meanwhile, authorities have announced new arrests and charges, and the FBI has appealed to the public to help bring more rioters to justice. And Twitter has become the latest social media giant to lock Trump out - permanently banning the president from the platform, citing the risk of further incitement of violence.The violent scenes of a few days ago have made way for this: a state of emergency, an unscalable fence, and more than six thousand National Guard troops. Stricter security measures are due to remain in place until after Joe Biden's inauguration this month.DC Residents, meanwhile, are still coming to terms with Wednesday's riot. Dozens of those who stormed the Capitol have now been arrested, with more arrests expected in the coming days. The FBI has appealed to the public to help bring more rioters to justice.House Democrats are pressing ahead with an article of impeachment on Monday, a move which would make Donald Trump the first ever President to be impeached twice. It could also mean that Trump would be unable to run for public office in future. It's a move that has received support from some Republicans, but critics say their turn against Trump has come too late. As for President Trump, he's now been banned from Twitter as well as other social media platforms, who're quoting concerns over inciting further violence. Tech giants and members of Trump's own party may now also be turning against him, but across the country, there's still no shortage of people who support the outgoing president.
