25th Amendment to the United States Constitution


Trump facing 2nd impeachment

President Trump might become the first commander in chief to be impeached twice. The House of Representatives is set to vote on an article of impeachment on Wednesday. Before that vote, the House on Tuesday will vote on a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment. CBS News chief congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes and White House correspondent Ben Tracy join CBSN's Elaine Quijano with the latest from Washington, D.C.

Kim Whele, a law professor at the University of Baltimore and author of "How to Read the Constitution - and Why," joins "CBSN AM" with more.
