Donald J. Trump would be impeached on Tuesday or Wednesday, becoming the only American president to be impeached twice, House Majority Whip James Clyburn said on Sunday.

Speaking with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, Clyburn said the House of Representatives would vote either on Tuesday or Wednesday to impeach Trump over his role in the deadly riots at the Capitol on Wednesday by his supporters.

Democratic members of Congress distributed a draft article of impeachment against President Trump on Friday titled “Incitement of Insurrection.” The House is expected to introduce it on Monday to begin the impeachment procedures.

Clyburn did not say whether the Democrats would wait for the two Democratic senators-elect in Georgia to be sworn in and give his party control of the Senate before sending the article of impeachment to the Senate for trial.

Clyburn said on Friday that the ease in which rioters were able to get into the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday suggests that someone on the inside of the Capitol was “complicit” in the deadly attack.

If convicted, Trump would be removed from office just days before the end of his tenure, and would be banned from holding public office again, dashing his plans to run again in 2024.

The conviction may likely open a way for other Republicans to run and take back the Republican party from Trump.
