Donald Trump has become the first president in US history to be impeached twice, after being charged with "incitement of insurrection" over last week's deadly storming of Congress.

The House of Representatives accused  Trump of encouraging violence with his false claims of election fraud.

He now faces trial in the upper chamber, the Senate, but not before he leaves office next Wednesday.

Senators can vote to bar him from ever holding public office again.

KAN's Mark Weiss asked Dr Yael Sternhell, an expert on US politics from Tel Aviv university, about the significance of the House impeachment vote.
