President Donald Trump impeachment inquiry

WASHINGTON (AP) -- With impeachment ahead, the House is trying first to push the vice president and Cabinet to act even more quickly to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Democrats approved a resolution Tuesday night calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke constitutional authority under the 25th Amendment to oust Trump -- though Pence said he would not do so.

The House will vote Wednesday on actually impeaching Trump.

That may well pass, though conviction in the Senate -- if the question comes to a vote-- is much less likely.

Trump said Tuesday that the impeachment effort itself was what was causing "tremendous anger" in the country.

He will face a single impeachment charge -- "incitement of insurrection."
