Latest live news updates: The US House of Representatives began the debate on Wednesday to consider impeaching the President for his role in an assault on American democracy that stunned the nation and left five dead. Trump has been accused of rallying a violent mob of supporters to attack the US Capitol last week. 

Trump is set to be impeached for an unprecedented second time.


At least five Republicans have said they would join Democrats in voting for an article of impeachment–a formal charge–of inciting an insurrection just seven days before he is due to leave office and President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20. If the House approves it, Trump would become the first president impeached twice.

In another news, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation on Wednesday imposed a ban on sale and storage of poultry or processed chicken meat by shops and restaurants with immediate effect, in view of the bird flu situation in the capital. 

Earlier in the day, the Enforcement Directorate arrested former TMC MP K D Singh in a money laundering case. They said Singh has been placed under arrest under sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
