President Trump is impeached for the second time

142

On Wednesday, The House of Reps voted to impeach President Trump making him a historical, the only President, who was impeached twice during one term in the office.

Just a week before Trump’s presidency expires and thirteen months after the Democrats’ first attempt to get rid of him in the White House, the House impeached him over his role in the U.S. Capitol riot at the beginning of the year which ended with deaths of 5 people, and charging him with “incitement of insurrection.”

This time, the impeachment was ultimate in a 232-197 bipartisan vote. Unlike the 2019’s impeachment when GOP didn’t fully support it, this year, 10 Republicans broke with the party and voted to remove Trump from the White House. They are Liz Cheney of Wyoming, Jamie Herrera Beutler of Washington, John Katko of New York, Fred Upton of Michigan, Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Dan Newhouse of Washington, Peter Meijer of Michigan, Tom Rice of South Carolina, Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio and David Valadao of California.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the high-stakes affair won’t start until after Trump leaves office on Jan. 20.

“There is simply no chance that a fair or serious trial could conclude before President-elect Biden is sworn in next week,” McConnell said. “In light of this reality, I believe it will best serve out nation if Congress and the executive branch spend the next seven days completely focused on facilitating a safe inauguration and orderly transfer of power.”

As of now, it’s unclear when the impeachment goes to the Senate.

“Make no mistake, there will be an impeachment trial,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said.

And again, regardless of the results of the vote, do they have any clear and solid evidence of Trump personally involved in the ignition of the riot on January 6? No, they don’t have one.

The Daily News managed to talk to New York Rep. Gregory Meeks outside the House chamber.

“Joe Biden is the appropriate person at the right time,” Rep. Meeks said. “He has the stature to bring us back together with the people who love America, and to make sure that there’s justice for those who don’t.”
