The U.S House of Representatives has voted to impeach President Donald Trump — making him the only president in American history to be impeached twice.
The impeachment vote comes just 7 days before Trump is set to leave office.
Ten Republicans joined all Democrats in a 232-197 vote supporting a single impeachment count: “incitement of insurrection.”
Ordinarily, 217 votes were needed to impeach the president.
The process now moves to the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has indicated that a trial won’t begin until Trump is out of office.
House lawmakers charged Trump with one article of impeachment for “incitement of insurrection” citing his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell’s office had earlier confirmed that the Senate will not return early for an impeachment trial, so the earliest the trial could start is Jan. 19 — a day before Biden’s inauguration.
