The US House of Representatives has impeached Donald Trump for fomenting a deadly insurrection at the Capitol on 6 January 2021, making him the first president in the nation’s history to be impeached twice.
Every Democrat in the chamber voted for the lone impeachment article, which officially accuses the president of “incitement to insurrection.”
Ten of a total 211 House Republicans joined them.
Wednesday’s ratified impeachment article now awaits transmission to a Senate controlled for the next couple weeks by Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The ratification came after a day of speeches from lawmakers recounting the harrowing experiences they faced as the pro-Trump rioters ransacked the legislature a week ago.
