Washington, District of Columbia: The United States House of Representatives on Wednesday, January 13th, 2021 has voted in favor of impeaching again United States President Donald Trump.
The United States House of Representatives voted 232 to 197 in favor of the article of impeachment against President Trump for the “incitement of insurrection” in last week’s deadly Capitol riot.
At least seven Republicans from the United States House of Representative have announced they would vote in favor of impeachment.
A simple majority of 218 votes by members of the United States House of Representatives are needed to impeach Trump.
United States President Donald Trump is now the only president ever to be impeached twice.
Earlier Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell rejected the idea to convene an emergency session for an impeachment trial, which means it would likely come after he leaves office.
There are just seven days left in United States President Donald Trump’s term, which he will depart on Wednesday, January 20th, 2021 when Elected United States President Joe Biden will be sworn into office as President of the United States of America.
