President Donald Trump has been impeached for the second time and has become the first president to be impeached twice.
With 10 Republicans backing the Democrats’ efforts to punish Trump for “incitement of insurrection,” the impeachment was the most bipartisan one in US history.
According to the reports, the House voted 232-197 in favor of impeaching the President over his alleged role in the insurrection that took place at the US Capitol.
While the President was impeached for the second time, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed not to bring the Senate together for trial before January 19, meaning that Trump won’t be removed from the White House before Inaugurating Day when the transfer of power will be completed.
Among the ten Republicans who turned on the President over his recent actions were Wyoming’s Liz Cheney, New York’s John Katko, Illinois’ Adam Kinzinger, Washington’s Jaime Herrera Beutler, Washington’s Dan Newhouse, Michigan’s Fred Upton, South Carolina’s Tom Rice, Michigan’s Peter Meijer, California’s David Valadao, and Ohio’s Anthony Gonzalez.
“There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution,” Republican House Number 3, Liz Cheney, said.
Just moments prior to Trump’s second impeachment, the White House released a statement in which Trump called for “NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind.”
“In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind. That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You,” Trump urged.
