For the third time in American history, the House of Representatives voted to impeach a president in the white house. This is after of course, a day-long debate on whether Trump violated his oath in position to pressuring Ukraine to damage a political opponent.
President Trump was ultimately impeached on two articles. The first vote, 230-197, was to impeach him for abuse of power and was almost entirely on party lines. It was then followed by a second 229-198 vote that the president obstructed Congress in the means of being the president of the United States.
During the 10 hour debate, both Republicans and Democrats were heated with emotions running high inside the Capitol.
The debate went on for house on Wednesday, as both sides brought up powerful points of what has been done since Trump has taken office since he has become president. Although no new evidence was brought to light on the existing allegations, the decision to impeach Trump was ruled by a common vote.
The impeachment votes prepares us for a historic trial that begins early next year in the Senate. This will ultimately give the final say in the impeachment. This comes 10 months before Mr. Trump faces re-election, but that is if it is decided by the senate whether to acquit the 45th president or convict and remove him from office.
