Following the violent Capitol riots which led to five deaths, Trump is one step closer to impeachment, just days before the end of his term.
Good morning! The birds are out, the sun is shining, and Trump just became the first president in US history to be impeached twice by the House of Representatives.
The final vote winded up being 232-197, with 10 Republicans even supporting the measure.
As history has shown us, the vote will need to appear before the Senate before the impeachment is set in stone. Although the trial will likely finish after Biden takes office anyway, the impeachment will prevent Trump from ever completing a second term (yay).
According to the House, the former president was proven guilty of “inciting violence against the government of the United States,” as a result of his incendiary messages towards alt-right extremists.

The House Republicans who voted against Trump are as follows:
John Katko of New York.
Liz Cheney of Wyoming.
Adam Kinzinger of Illinois.
Fred Upton of Michigan.
Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington state.
Dan Newhouse of Washington state.
Peter Meijer of Michigan.
Tom Rice of South Carolina.
Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio.
David Valadao of California.
These 10 Republican votes made this ruling the most bipartisan impeachment in history.
More to come.
It’s truly embarrassing for our country that only 10 republicans have the fortitude to do what is right for their country.
