BREAKING: The House of Representatives votes 232-197 to impeach President Trump for incitement of insurrection on the U.S. Capitol.
He’s the first president in history to be impeached twice.
The impeachment article states that in the months before January 6, Trump repeated false claims of widespread election fraud and said the results should not be accepted.
He also “willfully made statements that, in context, encouraged – and foreseeably resulted in – lawless action at the Capitol, such as: ‘if you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country any more,’” the article states.
