The final verdict was heard today which stated that Trump has been impeached, that too for the second time in his career! The reason behind his impeachment was encouraging his supporters, the Republicans, to storm the Capitol after no action was being taken about his claims regarding the election fraud. Keep reading to know what went down.
Trump has been impeached… again!
The House has voted for Trump’s impeachment again on the grounds of him encouraging his supporters to wreak havoc at the Capitol. He had also constantly been claiming election fraud since the day Biden won the election.
The votes were 232 to 197, with only 10 Republicans joining the Democrats for the verdict. The House was being protected by National Guard troops stationed by the Capitol itself while the decision was being made by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Ms. Pelosi even stated that: “He must go—he is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love.” Other than the House Speaker, Representative Jamie Raskin, Democrat of Maryland, talked about the dangers of the storming of the Capitol stating that: “They may have been hunting for Pence and Pelosi to stage their coup, but every one of us in this room right now could have died.”
Although Trump has been impeached, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConell has indicated that the trial for Trump’s impeachment will most likely be taking place after Biden’s inauguration as he won’t be bringing back senators until the last day of Trump’s term.
This makes the fact clear that Trump will be facing a “late impeachment” as his term will have ended. This means that he will not be able to run for the office in the coming years and might also lose his pension and post-presidential perks!
