Donald Trump Becomes First US President In History To Be Impeached Twice

United States President Donald Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives for a historic second time on Wednesday. Trump was charged with “incitement of insurrection”, a week after the riot at Capitol Hill.

With the Capitol guarded by armed National Guard troops inside and out, the House voted 232-197 to impeach Trump. Ten Republicans rallied behind Democrats saying Trump needed to be held accountable, and warned ominously of a “clear and present danger” if Congress should leave him unchecked before president-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration January 20.

Following the proceedings, Trump released a video unequivocally condemning last week’s violence, asked his supporters to remain calm but made no mention of his impeachment.
