Breaking! President Trump Impeached For Second Time, Makes History

245

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.
