WASHINGTON — The United States House of Representatives voted 232-197 to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday.
Congress charged the president with “incitement of insurrection” following a protest that turned violent when some protesters entered the Capitol. The siege led to several deaths, injuries and substantial property damage to the Capitol.
Democrat Terri Sewell was the lone Alabama representative to vote for impeachment. Republican congressmen Jerry Carl, Barry Moore, Mike Rogers, Robert Aderholt, Mo Brooks and Gary Palmer all voted no on the impeachment.
Ten Republican lawmakers crossed party lines and voted with the Democrats who were unanimously for impeachment. The Republicans voting to impeach were Liz Cheney, Anthony Gonzalez, Jaime Herrera Beutler, John Katko, Adam Kinzinger, Peter Meijer, Dan Newhouse, Tom Rice, Fred Upton, and David Valadao.
Trump becomes the first U.S. president to face impeachment charges twice. It isn’t clear when or if the Senate will take up the case with Trump’s impending departure from office on Jan. 20, one week from today.
