Trump impeachment: Several Republicans to join Democrats in House vote

Some Republicans say they will join Democrats and vote to charge the president with inciting insurrection.

Of course, the primary consequence of Senate conviction - removal from office - seems of limited relevance with so little time left in the Trump presidency. Democrats, however, view impeachment as a formal way of marking their outrage at the president's behaviour, not just last week, but during his months of challenging and undermining November's election results.
