WASHINGTON: Donald Trump on Wednesday became the first President in US history to be impeached twice as the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives formally charged him with “incitement of insurrection”.
Ten Republicans joined Democrats to impeach Trump by 232-197.
Donald Trump will now face a trial in the Senate, where if convicted he could face being barred from ever holding public office again.
Meanwhile, US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that Trump’s impeachment has confirmed that “no one is above the law, not even the President of the United States”.
Pelosi added that Donald Trump is a “clear and present danger to our country”.
US House of Representatives on Wednesday impeached Trump for “incitement of insurrection” for his role in last week’s Capitol riots.
