Trump becomes first US president to be impeached twice

President Donald Trump was impeached for the second time on Wednesday (Jan 13) by the House of Representatives, in a bipartisan vote that saw all 222 Democrats and 10 Republicans vote to charge him with incitement of insurrection following the attack on the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob.

Mr Trump is the first United States president to be impeached twice, following his first impeachment in 2019 for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Unlike in 2019, when not a single Republican voted to impeach Mr Trump, Wednesday’s vote had 10 Republicans break from the President, and a number of senior Republicans level significant criticism at his actions. Some 197 Republicans voted against impeachment.

Third time's the charm!

If the members of the House of Representatives get their act together, they could probably impeach him again on Tuesday!
