President Trump impeached in a House majority vote for 'incitement of insurrection,' making him the only president to be impeached twice. Republicans joined Democrats in a remarkably speedy impeachment just one week after lawmakers say the president incited a deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol. The decision now is when House Democratic leaders will send the article of “incitement of insurrection” to the Senate, which would decide whether to convict Trump and possibly bar him from holding future public office.

President Trump pardons Steve Bannon, Lil Wayne among 73 people in one of the final acts of his presidency. President Donald Trump again used the traditional pardon process and his presidential authority to bring relief for a mix of beneficiaries, including his former strategist Bannon, awaiting trial on federal fraud charges, and rapper Lil Wayne, awaiting sentencing on a gun possession charge. He also commuted the sentences of 70 people, including Kwame Kilpatrick, the disgraced former Detroit mayor who is serving a 28-year federal prison sentence. Ref. USAToday.
At least he has not attempted to pardon himself or his children which would not make any sense because:
1. It would mean that he agrees he has committed a federal crime.
2. It would give any president unlimited power to do whatever and then simply pardon himself.

President Trump departs the nation’s capital ahead of Joe Biden's inauguration, breaking a century of tradition by skipping the ceremony. Trump’s early departure from Joint Base Andrews means he will also ditch the traditional helicopter lift from the U.S. Capitol, a potent moment of symbolism that underscores the peaceful transfer of power between two presidents. Trump instead has a solitary schedule that takes him from the White House residence to Mar-a-Lago on inauguration morning. Ref. USAToday.
