Trump Just Got Impeached for Inciting Insurrection

Trump Just Got Impeached for Inciting Insurrection

President Trump just got impeached—again.

On Wednesday, Trump became the first president in American history to be impeached twice by the House of Representatives, capping off his divisive years in the White House with a scarlet mark of shame. 

The House slapped Trump with a single article of impeachment for inciting insurrection, after he riled up a mob that assaulted the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6 in a chaotic siege that resulted in at least five deaths. Moments before the violence began, Trump urged the crowd to “fight like hell.”  

The measure won support from several Republicans in a dramatic show of defiance against the president who has dominated GOP politics for five years. 

“There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution,” Republican Rep. Lynn Cheney of Wyoming, the No. 3 House GOP member and daughter of the arch-conservative former Republican Vice President Dick Cheney, said in a statement before the vote. 

“He must go,” Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the chamber. “He is a clear and present danger to the country we all love.” 

With his second impeachment, Trump outstripped both former president Bill Clinton and Andrew Johnson, who each earned the dubious distinction just once, and even Richard Nixon, who resigned the presidency in disgrace before Congress could impeach him.

Next Up: Senate Trial

All eyes will now turn toward the Senate, which is responsible for deciding whether to boot Trump out of office after the House vote, and to the wily Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. 

McConnell told his Republican colleagues that he’s at least open to convicting Trump during a Senate impeachment trial. He’s also reportedly “pleased” that Democrats moved to impeach Trump, with an eye toward sweeping Trump out of the Republican Party. 

But McConnell has also taken the position that the Senate trial technically can’t start until next week, around the time Trump steps down on January 20. 

Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer urged McConnell on Tuesday to invoke emergency powers to call the Senate back sooner. McConnell reportedly rebuffed Schumer on Wednesday afternoon. 

Even if the Senate trial occurs after Trump steps down, it could still prove momentous. If Republicans in the Senate get on board and convict him, Congress could then tack on a measure that bars him from political office in the United States of America forever. 

On the other hand, a long and vicious Senate trial could also distract lawmakers from passing President-elect Joe Biden’s agenda—like economic relief from the pandemic-induced downturn—and keep the national spotlight focused on Trump even after his turbulent presidency ends.
