President Trump Impeached for the Second Time
For the first time in U.S. history, a U.S. president has been impeached for the second time. The House of Representatives began voting Wednesday afternoon to make President Trump, the only president in U.S. History to be impeached twice, and the motion ended up passing easily in the Democrat-controlled House. Even some Republicans voted in favor of the motion.
The Senate trial won't be held until after President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on January 20th according to a spokesman for Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The article of impeachment, accuses Trump of "inciting violence against the government of the United States" after protestors stormed the Capitol last week.
Across U.S. History, only two other presidents were impeached. Andrew Johnson in 1868, and Bill Clinton in 1998, but neither were convicted.
