BREAKING NEWS House Votes 232 to 197 to Impeach President Trump for the Second Time




WASHINGTON D.C. - The House has just voted to impeach President Trump for the second time – making him the only US president to ever be impeached twice. The resolution passed 232 to 197.

The impeachment resolution the House voted on charges Trump with a single article, "incitement of insurrection" for his role in last week's deadly Capitol riot.

There is no such thing as a routine impeachment but this one is unprecedented in all sorts of ways.

The overall impeachment process laid out in the Constitution is relatively simple:


  • A president commits "high Crime or Misdemeanor"

  • The House votes to impeach

  • The Senate conducts a trial


This impeachment process will feel entirely new and different from the one we saw in late 2019 around the Ukraine investigation, most notably because the Senate trial is expected to occur after Trump leaves office.
