Trump Impeached … Again
President Donald Trump made history Wednesday by being the first president to be impeached twice.
The historic bipartisan vote, 232 to 197, by the House of Representatives comes one week after Trump urged his loyalists to march on the U.S. Capitol, resulting in a deadly insurrection, and a week before he leaves the White House.
The article of impeachment, for “incitement of insurrection,” was adopted by the Democratic-controlled House after hours of debate. Ten Republicans joined Democrats in voting for impeachment. The process now moves to the Senate.
Vice President Mike Pence was urged to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, but he declined.
