BREAKING: House of Representatives Impeaches President Trump for a Second Time

The US House of Representatives has just voted to impeach President Trump over one charge of “incitement and insurrection” following last week’s violence on Capitol Hill, making him the first president in history to be impeached twice while in office. 

The final vote count was 232-197. Unlike his first impeachment, when no Republicans voted in favor of impeaching the president, this time 10 Republicans joined with Democrats to impeach Trump. Lakewood’s representative in the House, Rep. Chris Smith, was not one of them. While 10 Republicans votes is a small minority of the GOP contingent in the House, it is still the most votes in history that members of a political party have cast to impeach a president from their own party.

The single article of impeachment will now head to the Senate for a vote to potentially convict and remove the president from office. However, it isn’t clear when that vote would take place. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he will not reconvene the Senate for such a vote until at least January 19th, just a day before Trump’s term ends and Joe Biden is sworn in as president.

However, there is speculation that the vote might take place even after Trump’s term expires. The reasoning for that would be to vote to convict him, followed by another vote to bar him from ever holding federal office again, blocking him from making another run for president in 2024, as he has indicated he might do.

    impeachment only matters if it’s done by people of consequence! Getting impeached by a swarm of rats means nothing!

  • Mutty says:

    They’re always impeaching him! I hope this fighting stops already.
    They’re all Tzadikim: President Trump’s father donated a plot and built a gorgeous synagogue and Jewish center with all of his heart in Sheepshead Bay somewhere & Donald Trump as a teenager helped build it.
    Nancy Pelosi is a very big Tzadeikis; she comes from a family of Tzadikim, at the commencement of the Holocaust Nancy Pelosi’s Father as a Congressman saved over 200,000 Jews, against the will of President Roosevelt he begun an organization which evacuated over 200,000 Jews from troubled Europe to Palestine & after the Holocaust he ran to Europe to liberate them and take care of them etc.; he was an Italian with a heart of gold and so is Nancy Pelosi.

  • Phony Dems says:

    Another way of saying this is as follows: This is the first time a group of partisan politicians have voted to impeach a president twice.
    This achievement which will afford them the prestigious honor of possibly making it into the Guinness Book of World Records.
    It is also feasible that, as a result of their impeachment heroics, Pelosi and company will join the late Ayatollah Khomeini and be voted Time Magazines Men and Women of the year 2020; Khomeini received the prestigious honor many years ago.
