    Photos: Security heightened at Capitol in advance of inauguration amid new impeachment push

    With the inauguration of Joe Biden a week away, the House of Representatives began debating whether to impeach President Trump for a second time after a mob of pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol last week.

    National guardsmen have taken up posts inside the Capitol.

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) walks past members of the National Guard sleeping on the floor in the halls of the Capitol where they’ve been deployed in the wake of an assault on the building by a violent mob on Jan. 6 and in advance of a vote Wednesday by the House on a second impeachment of President Trump and President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.
