Unhinged sore loser Donald Trump will now carry the historic shame of being the first and only US President to be impeached twice in the same term. Just after 1:20 pm PT Wednesday, the House of Representatives reached a 232-197 majority to impeach Trump  — on almost the exact same date they impeached him one year ago  — after Trump incited a violent insurrection at the US Capitol that left these exact same lawmakers fearing for their lives.

“Resolved, that Donald John Trump, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and that the following article of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate,” says the full text of the one single article  of impeachment. “Donald John Trump engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by inciting violence against the Government of the United States.”

With the voting now complete, 10 Republicans crossed party lines and voted to impeach Trump. It was the most bipartisan impeachment majority vote in the history of the United States House of Representatives.

WHAT HAPPENS NOW?

The House has the sole right to impeach, but only the Senate can remove Trump from office. Mitch McConnell said he will not reconvene the Senate until January 19, 2021, so the current Senate will not remove Trump from office. While it requires a two-thirds majority to remove Trump from office, the Senate can bar Trump from running for US office ever again with a simple majority vote.

And guess who’s about to take over the majority in the Senate.
