Just 13 months ago, the US House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump for abuse of power in the Ukraine phone calls scandal and the Russia inquiry. He was acquitted in a Senate trial a few weeks later. Not that there has been much news here or around the world since, but the Democratic-controlled House is meeting on Wednesday to vote on a new impeachment article against POTUS 45.
This time, the House votes to impeach Trump for “inciting insurgency” because of his role in last week’s assault on the U.S. Capitol. It would be the first time that an American president has been impeached twice. If found guilty by the Senate, Trump could be disqualified again from running for public office.
Many news outlets did not provide details of their coverage plans for Wednesday, but here’s what we do know:
You can watch a livestream here on Deadline. Check it out above.
CNN is removing its paywall for a free live broadcast from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET, so the audience can be viewed for free on its website and app. CBS News also offers a live broadcast on its digital outlets and on YouTube.
The Fox News Channel and MSNBC cable news networks are also expected to broadcast their coverage on television, the Internet and their apps. Social networks, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, will also provide live coverage.
Somewhere else, PBS NewsHour will be broadcast The second Accused by President Trump, A PBS NewsHour Special starting at 9 a.m. ET, which will include live coverage of the proceedings. Editor-in-chief Judy Woodruff will anchor the programming with contributions from White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, Capitol Hill correspondent Lisa Desjardins and guests. Coverage will extend to PBS NewsHour’s digital and social platforms.
We will update this post as we hear from other networks.
