US President Donald Trump is impeached for a second time
US President Donald Trump becomes the first American president to be impeached twice after he encouraged loyalists to 'fight like hell' against election results.
Print text onlyPrintCancelThe House of Representatives has voted 232 to 197 to impeach US President Donald Trump, the first US president to be impeached twice, formally charging him with inciting an insurrection.One week after a violent mob of Mr Trump's supporters stormed the Capitol, a majority of politicians in the Democratic-controlled chamber voted in favour of impeachment, calling the incident a deadly assault on American democracy.
But it appears unlikely Mr Trump will be removed from office before his term ends.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday (local time) blocked a quick Senate impeachment trial for Mr Trump, but did not rule out that he might eventually vote to convict him.
A spokesman for Mr McConnell said he had informed Democrats that he would block their effort to quickly call the chamber back into emergency session to put Mr Trump on trial.LIVE UPDATES: Read our blog for the latest as Donald Trump is impeached for a second time headtopics.com
Mr McConnell's move means the Senate trial is all but certain to be delayed until after Joe Biden's inauguration as president on January 20.Most Republicans in the House opposed the Democrats' resolution, but at least half a dozen had stated their intention before the vote to break ranks to support it.
Ten Republicans ended up voting in favour impeachment.Third-ranking House Republican Liz Cheney — daughter of former Republican vice-president Dick Cheney — led the GOP opposition to Mr Trump, saying in a statement: "There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution."
The proceedings moved at lightning speed, with the House voting just one week after violent pro-Trump loyalists stormed the US Capitol, urged on by the president's calls for them to "fight like hell" against the election results.Donald Trump was last impeached in December 2019 on two articles — an abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — but was acquitted by the Senate voting along party lines.Read more: ABC News »

It’s going to interesting to see how our very own sycophants spin this auspol Not a good move if the new leadership is trying to unify the country. fuelonflame You mean they try for a second time Didn't SenWarren use 'fight like hell' in her speeches? The leftist dictionary defines things differently, I guess.
'fight like hell' always means a physical fight? Did they leave out the go and 'cheer on the Republicans' part? Because that would pretty much kill their argument. It’s never been the election between Trump and Biden, it was Trump lovers vs haters :) People can dislike his personalities, though he delivered some significant achievements to world! Just let him go peacefully... why Democrats is so obsessed to “lock him up” in various ways?👎🏻
Any REAL, ACTUAL evidence presented? Or just a bunch of blowhards spewing hot air? If covid hadn't shown up he'd have been re -elected So much winning If only the journalists, including our ABC, had spent some time exposing the thuggery of their fellow Progressives this probably wouldn't have come to a head at the Capitol.
Good Nancy Pelosi SpeakerPelosi Our election was hijacked. There is no question. Congress has a duty to ProtectOurDemocracy & FollowTheFacts. 12:44 PM · May 16, 2017 With all the problems the US has at the moment, I would’ve thought the incoming administration should focus on them. 3rd time Good. He's an enemy of democracy and America itself.
10 Democrats cross the floor ABC? Sack Ita I say. YES YES YES. BestPresidentEver... at being Impeached! david_papps55 So he has been elected once and impeached twice. Nobody has been impeached more than Donald Trump. He is the most impeachable president ever. Everybody says so. How many times does he need to be impeached before he is actually impeached?
Of course he won't run again due to his retirement soon. This is BS. He stopped wars, not started them like the rest of these fkers. This shows how much THEY are under the pressure. It’s working! The USA must get rid of pelosi she is the great danger to them. Won't succeed It must be remembered nothing happens without Almighty God allowing it, so he ultimately exposes the plans of the ungodly and delivers his judgment. Woe to those who stand against the plans of the Lord. What seems right can lead to destruction later.
hahahahahahaha suck it And now more importantly let’s hope this impeachment means he can never, ever run for the presidency again! We’re witnessing the crumbling of an empire, the next four years will be quite entertaining. Donald J. Trump is still the mighty president for the skynews and foxnews anchors and viewers.
I didn’t think people were gullible enough to be brainwashed by the anti Trump mainstream media. After reading many of the comments here, I was wrong. 😂 Good! Even if it fails it was the right thing to do. And all the 'impartial journalists' at ABC are cheering. Best news ever Haha loser. They have been trying to impeach him since 20 minutes after his inauguration.
And Trumps approval rating climbs. Healing & unity in the US. lets hope he can be punish, he deserve to be kicked in the guts,,the way he did it to the american people, ending is mandate in the dirtyest way possible, Now they can move onto the execution. Just think of the ratings - tremendous! The global tv audience for it will be huge, one of the biggest ever.
Meanwhile in the staff canteen.. IT WONT PASS!! Yes he is a goose but he didn’t start 2 wars based on phony intel like W in fact he has withdrawn US troops from many parts of the world. Let’s get some perspective going here people. ...and he will be acquitted for the second time...should the Senate be bothered to even hear the matter...
Ha ha. And will get thrown out in the senate. Pelosi knows this, but she chooses to stoke division while claiming the country needs to unite. Just shows how terrified the Dems are of him politically. Good luck to America you will need it with democracy all but dead within 12 months Womp Womp The art of the deal, eh.
Good, we don't need people in that position that expose the system for what it is Poor trump, a great man. I would say he has done lots of great job those his predecessor never done! Really this is about the Trump haters impeaching themselves, for being small minded, mean of spirt, vindictive & behaving like spiteful jealous little children 👏👏👏. shipoffools
It’s all a con. 2021 is finally starting look positive! Republicans: “we might be racist but not as racist as him” Perfect!!! convict and bar him from ever serving again My day and the world heaves a sigh of relief..justbekind EugeneGoodmanHero Democracy Wins 💙💙🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
