President Donald J. Trump has been impeached for the second time in 13 months for inciting a mob to storm the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Trump was impeached on Wednesday January 13, 2021, under a single charge: “incitement of insurrection.”

Ten Republican House members joined 222 Democrats to impeach Trump.

The vote was 232 in favor of impeachment and 197 against impeachment. Four members of Congress did not vote.

All 222 Democrats present voted to impeach Trump and 197 Republicans voted against impeachment while 10 Republicans voted for impeachment.

Trump has now become the only President in the United States to be impeached twice.

Trump urged a mob of supporters to march on the U.S. Capitol on January 6 while the lawmakers were about to certify Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s win.

He asked them to take their country back “with strength”, adding that they should “fight like hell.”

By the the time the mob descended on the U.S. Capitol, they unleashed mayhem. At least 6 people have died as a result of the insurrection, including two Capitol police officers.

The next step is for Speaker Nancy Pelosi to deliver the articles of impeachment to the Senate to commence the trial of Donald Trump.

In a statement, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the trial will likely take place after Biden takes office on January 20, 2021.

He said the Senate will reconvene on January 19 and McConnell argued that a fair trial can only take place after Trump has left office in seven days.
