The internal Senate discussions were unfolding as the Democratic-controlled House sped toward impeaching the president for his role in last week’s siege of the U.S. Capitol, when Trump supporters breached the building’s security, sent lawmakers fleeing and left five dead in their wake, including a police officer.
The House was due to consider a single article of impeachment – a formal charge – of inciting an insurrection, who is due to leave office in one week. If the House approves it, Trump would become the first president impeached twice. National Guard troops and police provided security at the Capitol.
