Donald Trump Becomes the First US President to be Impeached Twice

6
US President Donald Trump was impeached by the US House for a historic second time Wednesday, charged with “incitement of insurrection” over the deadly mob siege of the Capitol in a swift and stunning collapse of his final days in office.
With the Capitol secured by armed National Guard troops inside and out, the House voted 232-197 to impeach Trump. The proceedings moved at lightning speed, with lawmakers voting just one week after violent pro-Trump loyalists stormed the US Capitol, egged on by the president’s calls for them to “fight like hell” against the election results.

Ten Republicans fled Trump, joining Democrats who said he needed to be held accountable and warned ominously of a “clear and present danger” if Congress should leave him unchecked before Democrat Joe Biden’s inauguration Jan. 20.

Trump is the only U.S. president to be twice impeached.

The Capitol insurrection stunned and angered lawmakers, who were sent scrambling for safety as the mob descended, and it revealed the fragility of the nation’s history of peaceful transfers of power. The riot also forced a reckoning among some Republicans, who have stood by Trump throughout his presidency and largely allowed him to spread false attacks against the integrity of the 2020 election.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invoked Abraham Lincoln and the Bible, imploring lawmakers to uphold their oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign “and domestic.” She said of Trump: “He must go, he is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love.”

  1. They’ve kicked him to the curb twice now. He’ll soon be gone. Lots of changes will be coming, and it will be good for the Caribbean, too. It’s hard to believe that such a man could have been at the helm for four agonizing years. So much pain. So much evil. Such wickedness. Better days are ahead.

    • Better days are ahead u say? I think not. It’s not about the person, it’s about the system. Brace yourself and draw nigh to the Most High. He has given us His word to be a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. Doesn’t matter who is in office, the prophecy must be fulfilled.

      Maybe just maybe the covid-19 “pandemic” is a test run of things to come. The book of Revelation calls our attention to some serious happenings in this world, but thankfully the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the King of Kings and Lord of lords already won the battle on the old rugged cross.

      “For God did NOT send His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Jesus Christ might be saved.” (John 3:17)

      “Perilous times shall come” but in the end, the mess gets cleaned up. Hold fast, be faithful, watch and pray.

      • It seems you are missing your calling. Anyway my friend whathever it is you need to get back behind that microphone. The people are missing you. Don’t be selfish or self-centered.

      • Strange the amount of economic growth we seem to have under Democratic Presidents, only to be squandered under Repubican Presidents.
        But I don’t really care about things that happening in the USA. Cause both Democratic and Republican lead adminsitration have proven to be very toxid for the Cribbean and most under developed countries.
        Antigua still cannot be given its rightful won judgement from the WTO. The USA does not respect any international body’s ruling. Invading Iraq was based on a lie and no compensation has ever been made for the thousands of Iraqie lives that were lost. And yes we watched it all live on our TV’s. Our hearts are cold and harden as we see this bombing of a country when children and elder, Everything that lives is destroyed within minutes by these large bombs fired from ships and planes miles and miles away.
        Jah no sleep nor slumber
