Donald Trump becomes 1st US president to be impeached twice

Jan 14, 2021 06:57 IST

Donald Trump became the first US president in history to be impeached twice. The House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to charge him with inciting last week's mob attack on the Capitol Hill. While Trump will depart White House in disgrace, he will not face immediate Senate trial, which will happen after Joe Biden takes over on January 20. If convicted, Trump is likely to be barred from seeking another term in 2024. In the House vote of 232 to 197 for impeachment, at least 10 Republicans broke ranks and joined the Democrats in voting to put Trump on trial. Trump survived a first impeachment almost exactly a year ago when the Republican-controlled Senate acquitted him of abusing his office charge.
