The US House of Representatives has impeached President Donald Trump, marking the first time in US history that a president has been impeached twice.

According to the house, the President was impeached for incitement of insurrection after a mob of his supporters stormed the United States Capitol last week.

The House resolution, which passed by a vote of 232-197 on Wednesday afternoon, states that Trump’s actions and remarks ahead of the storming of the Capitol building in Washington, DC incited the rioters.

Nancy Pelosi, the House speaker during a debate before the vote said:

We know that 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”.

Ten Republicans joined 222 Democrats in voting to impeach Trump, making the vote a bipartisan rebuke of the president’s attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

The riot at the Capitol on January 6 left five people dead and sent shockwaves across the US and the world, spurring Democratic Party legislators to launch an impeachment push against Trump in his final days in the White House.

The Capitol was stormed after Trump delivered an inflammatory speech to a crowd of his supporters that had gathered to protest Congress’ certification of US President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory.
