In bipartisan rebuke, House members vote to impeach Trump an unprecedented second time

Last edited Wed Jan 13, 2021, 06:46 PM - Edit history (1)

The House on Wednesday voted to impeach Trump on a charge of "inciting violence" against the U.S. government, making him the first president in U.S. history to have been impeached twice.

The final vote count was 232 in favor and 197 opposed. Ten Republicans joined all Democrats present in voting to impeach Trump.

The vote came seven days before Trump leaves office and one week after a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol, resulting in five deaths and endangering the lives of the vice president and members of Congress. Trump now faces a Senate trial after his term ends, when the chamber could vote on barring him from future elective office if he is convicted.

The 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump are Reps. Liz Cheney (Wyo.), Anthony Gonzalez (Ohio), Jaime Herrera Beutler (Wash.), John Katko (N.Y.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.), Peter Meijer (Mich.), Dan Newhouse (Wash.), Tom Rice (S.C.), Fred Upton (Mich.) and David Valadao (Calif.).

Full headline: In bipartisan rebuke, House members vote to impeach Trump an unprecedented second time, on a charge of 'inciting violence'



ENGROSSED RESOLUTION (SIGNED)



Original article -

The House voted Wednesday to impeach President Trump an unprecedented second time, on a charge of "inciting violence" against the U.S. government. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) left open the possibility of voting to convict at a trial, which would occur after Trump leaves office next week.

During debate on the House floor, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Trump "bears responsibility" for last week's violent takeover of the Capitol but argued against impeachment so close to the end of his term. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called Trump "a clear and present danger" and said "he must go."

4. So a replay, basically, of the 1/6 vote.

Republicans are still in lock step with the POTUS.

27. I heard it reported that this is the First Ever impeachment vote that was bi-partisan...

In light of that history, ten Republicans isn't so bad... but of course, there should have been many more.

(Talking presidential impeachments).

11. Yeah when Nancy banged the gavel to ask if everyone who wanted to vote had voted

or wanted to change their vote, I suddenly saw someone run up to the dais with a slip (apparently from a Democrat voting by proxy) and they handed it to a clerk who handed back up the line and the "1" from the (D) side that was still listed as "NV", suddenly cleared.

21. Let him.

The first hundred days of Biden's term should be dedicated to starting to undo trump's damage, with the Justice Department quietly investigating the insurrection, and rounding up the footsoldiers from 1/6.
With trump powerless and voiceless at Mar a Lago, his Congressional toadies will, by that time, start reconsidering their futures when the dirty little secrets start leaking out from the investigations.

13. 4.8% (10 of 207)

Good to know that 4.8% of the House Republicans are not traitors. Bummer about the other 95% who are. Quite a statement from the "Law and Order" party.

20. Do they actually think

the MAGAts will be voting without trump on the ballot? I doubt it. This isn't going to get them re-elected, it's going to ensure they are voted out.

16. 201 Republicans are complicit with Insurrection.

Definitely did not see Bob Good VA-05 amongst the 10.

Quite sure that a good amount of Insurrectionists came from his district.

25. She's been doing that since way before he was elected (back to 2006 when she first had the position)

It's standard for a SOH when a bill is passed. CSPAN usually covers the engrossment ceremonies for the more notable pieces of legislation, but you have to be a CSPAN junkie to catch it.

26. I hear that Trump is mad as hell, and ain't going to take it anymore.

If he pulls another stunt, do we have time to impeach him again?

Or should we wait for the Senate to act on today's impeachment?
