He must go! He is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love!” Donald Trump is the first President of the United States who has ever been impeached twice and quite possibly will be the first President of the United States to be convicted at the end of the impeachment process. The result of today’s vote in the House: 232 yea (222 Democrats+10 Republicans) vs. 197 nay (197 Republicans). More than half of the House voted to impeach Donald Trump. Next step is the requirement of 2/3 majority of the Senate votes in order to convict Donald Trump. In the video “Trump Impeached For Historic Second Time, NBC Nightly News“, below:
Kindly recall that all of these congressional members could have gotten killed last Wednesday, January 6, 2021, during the storming of the Capitol building by insurgents.
