The House of Representatives Vote to Impeach Donald Trump

Thursday, January 14th, 2021

A majority of the House of Representatives have voted to make Donald Trump the first US president ever to be impeached twice, formally charging him  with inciting an insurrection just a week after violence at the Capitol.

The House on Wednesday voted 232-197 to impeach Donald Trump, with 10 Republicans joining with Democrats to charge him with incitement of insurrection.

But it appears unlikely the  impeachment would lead to Mr Trump’s ouster before the Republican president’s four-year term ends and Democratic President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated on January 20. The Senate’s Republican majority leader, Mitch McConnell, rejected Democratic calls to convene the Senate in emergency session to begin an immediate impeachment trial, according to a spokesman.
