President Trump impeached a second time in historic vote night
BBC, 14 Jan 2021
The US House of Representatives has impeached President Donald Trump for "incitement of insurrection" at the Capitol riot on 6 January. Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog
Ten Republicans sided with Democrats to impeach the president by 232-197.
He is the first president in US history to be impeached twice, or charged with crimes by Congress.
Mr Trump, a Republican, will now face a trial in the Senate, where if convicted he could face being barred from ever holding office again.
But he will not have to quit the White House before his term ends in one week because the Senate will not reconvene in time.
Mr Trump leaves office on 20 January 2020, following his election defeat last November to Democrat Joe Biden.
