House lawmakers on Wednesday impeached President Trump. The 232-197 vote made Trump the first president in the country’s history to be impeached twice.
Ten Republicans joined every voting Democrat to approve the single impeachment article, which accuses Trump of inciting violence.
The most prominent Republican to break with Trump was House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (Wyo.), the No. 3 Republican leader and highest-ranking GOP woman in Congress, who said Trump “summoned the mob,” “lit the flame” of the attack and — despite pleas from his Hill allies — refused to call it off. “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution,” Cheney said in a statement.
Jim Jordan and Andy Biggs immediately called on Cheney to resign from leadership and on Wednesday began organizing an effort to oust her from power.
“I’m not going anywhere. This is a vote of conscience,” she said before the vote. “It’s one where there are different views in our conference. But our nation is facing an unprecedented — since the Civil War — constitutional crisis.”
JUST IN – For the second time, President Trump has been impeached by the US House of Representatives, this time for inciting an armed insurrection.
