Majority of House members vote for 2nd impeachment of Trump

Evan Vucci

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A majority of the U.S. House has voted to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time, just a week after he encouraged loyalists to “fight like hell” against election results - a speech that was followed by a mob of his supporters storming the U.S. Capitol.

The House vote on an article of impeachment for “incitement of insurrection” is still underway.  

Actual removal seems unlikely before the Jan. 20 inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would not agree to bring that chamber back immediately, all but ensuring a Senate trial could not begin at least until Jan. 19.

Still, McConnell did not rule out voting to convict Trump in the event of a trial.

According to ABC News, this vote makes Trump the only president to be impeached twice.

ABC News reports that ten Republicans sided with Democrats, with the count currently standing at 225-194 as of Wednesday afternoon. The House needed 217 votes to impeach the president.

  1. Nothing like bringing the country together. Vitriolic hate for Trump and the 70 million plus citizens, at its finest. What will Democrats do when Trump’s not in DC anymore???

  2. The Radical Dems and traitor RINO’s sure know how to bring us PRESIDENT TRUMP Supporters over to their side to start the heal…..

    1. Only Jesus healed more people than the current democrat regime. We should consider ourselves lucky.

    2. Your party murdered cops, vandalized, stole and shat and pissed in the Capitol Building. Your opinion is no longer desired.

    3. So you think that Trump should not be held accountable for what he clearly did? The healing needs to start where the trouble came from, those who supported the impeached President, who is the one who was in the wrong.

  3. If yall were concerned with unity your people WOULD NOT have stormed the capitol. nuff said moving on just very glad this guy cant do more damage in 4 yrs.

    1. Uh, what? Y’all people? Come on man! It’s y’all people with the unity rhetoric. And y’all people for years been screaming hate at the top of your lungs. It was well documented that it was a mostly peaceful protest in DC.

      1. “It was well documented that it was a mostly peaceful protest in DC.”
        .
        I’ve yet to see anything other than your opinion that it was a mostly peaceful protest. It was most clearly an act of insurrection, by definition.

    2. Sorry, Sparky. You don’t get decide when “nuff’s said. Besides, I thought y’all wanted to talk about things”. Come together, kum-bah-ya.

    3. Your people killed cops and burn down cities. Your people threatened people eating dinner. Your people attack women and children who dont agree with YOUR PEOPLE.

  4. Welcome to the United Social States of Amerika. WE just joined the ranks of Communist and Socialist countries who also believe you are GUILTY WITHOUT THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVE YOURSELF INNOCENT. Not only wasn’t there a FAIR TRIAL, there wasn’t even a TRIAL.
    Every Member of Congress that voted for Impeachment needs to be removed from office as well because they ignored the Constitution which they all took an oath to uphold as well.

    1. You should know better, warrenj6. The procedure that the House performed today is the equivalent of a grand jury. It’s purpose is to decide whether there is sufficient cause to profer charges, and if so to have the charges formalized and forwarded to the Senate. It is in the Senate where the trial is held. It is the Senate that determines guilt or innocence.

    2. How can you be so ignorant? RMC SS is correct, that the trial is yet to take place in the Senate. The members of Congress who voted to impeach were absolutely upholding the procedures laid out in the Constitution to deal with the transgressions of a President.

  5. Majority of House members vote for 2nd impeachment of Trump.

    Responsible America has spoken get over it!

    1. They vote their own interest and not the will of the people.
      The people are not demanding impeachment. Anyone you know demanding it or are they more concerned about lockdowns?
      Gov. Has divided this nation NOT its citezens. They just play us against each other.
      I just want to live my life and enjoy freedoms.
      Don’t you?
      DC IS THE PROBLEM.
      We’re FREE. Gov. Does not rule over us. They think they do. We should not let them.

      1. They followed the procedures laid out in the Constitution to deal with the transgressions of a President. Impeachment is the correct way to deal with a President who believes he’s above the law. And along with many others, I support what the members of Congress did. Just because you don’t support it doesn’t mean it wasn’t the will of the majority of voters.
        So go live your life and enjoy the freedoms you have.

    2. You mean get over it like Hillary? Or get over it like Nancy? I’m trying understand. Do you really believe these dribbling fools in DC voted to impeach because they care about you or this country?

  6. This is another short-term power grab with no foresight for possible ramifications. Because impeachment has been used as a partisan political weapon, the pendulum is now swinging the other way. The pendulum always swings the other way eventually. Now, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is filing articles of impeachment on the 21st against President Biden. What have the last two impeachments accomplished? What will this next impeachment attempt accomplish? It would be really great if our laws applied equally to all citizens, but the reality is that they don’t. If we don’t like the current political environment, then we all need to look in the mirror. Our government reflects our society. If we want a better government, we need to start with being better people. As a Christian, I will say it starts with a renewing of the heart by the power of the Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ, but even back in the day the Golden Rule of secular terms (treat others the way you want to be treated) reflected the second greatest commandment (love thy neighbor as yourself). Maybe the problem is that society doesn’t like itself very much? Maybe people can’t love one another because they don’t love themselves? (I am not referring to loving oneself as selfishness but as self-worth).
