President Donald Trump has been impeached again 7 days before his last day in office.
The House on Wednesday impeached President Trump for inciting a violent insurrection against the United States government, as 10 members of the president’s party joined Democrats to charge him with high crimes and misdemeanors for an unprecedented second time. This is a historic moment in the history of the United States, marking President Trump as the first president to ever have been impeached a second time.
The House had adopted a single article of impeachment, with a vote of 232 to 197 to charge President Donald Trump with “inciting violence against the government of the United States” and also requesting for his immediate removal from office and disqualification from ever holding the office again.
Ten Republicans joined Democrats in voting to impeach: Representatives Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the party’s No. 3 leader in the House; Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington; John Katko of New York: Adam Kinzinger of Illinois; Fred Upton of Michigan; Dan Newhouse of Washington: Peter Meijer of Michigan; Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio; David Valadao of California and Tom Rice of South Carolina.
