BREAKING: US lawmakers impeach President Donald Trump again

For the second time in two years, United States president, Donald Trump has been impeached by the US House of Representatives led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Trump who only has few days to the expiration of his tenure was impeached after he incited his followers to attack the Capital in an effort to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s presidential election win.

The Democrats alongside some of their Republican colleagues voted to impeach the controversial president on allegation of “incitement of insurrection. The resolution passed 232 to 197. With this, Trump has made history as the only American president impeached twice.

10 members of his party who vote to impeach him include:

Rep. Dan Newhouse of Washington

Rep. John Katko of New York

Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois

Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan

Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming

Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan

Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio

Rep. Tom Rice of South Carolina

Rep. David Valadao of California

However, it is unknown when the House will send the article of impeachment over to the Senate. After the Senate receives the article, a trial will take place and if enough senators vote to convict him, Trump will be removed from office. The senators can also vote to ban him from taking public office again. Meanwhile, the trial might not take place during Trump’s administration as he is set to leave office in some days’ time. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is expected to determine when the trial will take place.
