House Democrats' drive to impeach President Donald Trump for his role inciting last week's riots at the US Capitol is putting many Republicans in a bind as they weigh how to vote Wednesday on the conduct of a President who had previously been unassailable in the House GOP conference throughout his four-year term.

(CNN)House Democrats' drive to impeach President Donald Trump for his role inciting last week's riots at the US Capitol is putting many Republicans in a bind as they weigh how to vote Wednesday on the conduct of a President who had previously been unassailable in the House GOP conference throughout his four-year term.

The House will first vote on a measure Tuesday evening urging Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from power, which could signal how many Republicans will back impeachment.

Then on Wednesday, the House will take up a resolution and vote to impeach Trump for "incitement of insurrection. "

House Republican leaders won't whip their colleagues and tell them to vote against the impeachment resolution on Wednesday, according to leadership aides.

"This was a brutal and violent attack on our democracy, and Donald Trump incited this by promoting the big lie that he, in fact, won the election by millions of votes but it was stolen from him," Rep. David Cicilline, a Rhode Island Democrat and one of the authors of the impeachment resolution, said on CNN's "New Day" on Tuesday.
