House lawmakers on Wednesday impeached President Trump for his role in last week’s deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol, capping an extraordinary week of violence, apprehension and partisan brawling in Congress just as Washington cranks up security in preparation for Joe Biden’s inauguration, just a week away.
The vote was historic: It made Trump the first president in the country’s history to be impeached twice.
The article goes on to state the following:
And unlike the first debate, this time the president’s Democratic critics had support across the aisle. At least 10 Republicans joined every voting Democrat to approve the single impeachment article, which accuses Trump of inciting violence against the same federal government he leads.
The final vote was 232 to 197.

A separate report by Fox News provides the following information:
It’s unclear when Pelosi will send the article of impeachment over to the Senate. Once they arrive the Senate will convene a trial that will take place after Trump leaves office. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D.N.Y., had been pressuring Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to reconvene the Senate immediately under 2004 emergency powers.
But McConnell’s team informed Schumer’s office Wednesday they would not consent. That means the Senate is not slated to reconvene until Jan. 19 — a day before Biden’s inauguration.
It is unclear whether Trump would be found guilty in the Senate. It would require the vote of two-thirds of the body. The most damning consequence for Trump would be being barred from running for president again in 2024, which could lessen his grip on the Republican Party and free up the GOP field for new leaders.
Pelosi released the following video clip, touting her case for impeaching President Trump. The video includes clips from President Trump’s speech at the D.C. rally last Wednesday.
