House impeaches Trump a second time

January 13, 2021 News Extra

A majority of the U.S. House has voted to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time.

The House voted 232-197 to impeach Trump, with 10 Republicans joining with Democrats.

During debate before the vote, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked Republicans and Democrats to “search their souls.” Trump is the first American president to be impeached twice.

The impeachment proceedings came one week after a violent pro-Trump mob breached the Capitol, sending lawmakers into hiding and revealing the fragility of the nation's history of peaceful transfers of power. Five people died.

Trump has taken no responsibility for causing the riot.
