Donald Trump has become the first US President to be impeached twice, following a House of Representatives vote today — January 13, 2020 in Washington DC.
The decision follows his alleged “incitement of insurrection” during unrest at the Capitol Hill, leaving four dead—including a police officer.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, said: “The president of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion against our common country.
“He must go. He is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love.”
The vote went largely along party lines – but a few Republican Congressmen broke ranks, voting to condemn the leader of their own party.
It makes Trump the first President ever to be impeached twice.
