Donald Trump Impeachment Following The Vote In House Of Representatives
Donald Trump Impeachment – History now records Donald Trump to become the third president in US to be impeached. After a long day of debate, the House approved two articles of impeachment charging Trump with “Abuse of Power” and the second, “Obstruction of Congress.”
To approve the first article, the Congress voted 230-197 and 229-198 for the second.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, announcing the result, threw the impeachment as a sad, solemn occasion, shut down praise from Democrats
The vote from members was quite tremendous along party lines, with three Democrats kicking against one or both articles, and one, 2020 candidate Tusli Gabbard, voting present.
Afterward, Pelosi avoided questions about when she will release the articles of impeachment over to the Senate, indicating that wants to first ensure that the Senate will hold a “fair” trial.
Senate majority Leader, Mitchell McConnell said he will address the impeachment on the Senate floor tomorrow.
During the debate on impeachment, an appeals court delivered a long-awaited ruling on the Affordable Care Act. The court said that the “individual mandate” provision of Obamacare was unconstitutional while hitting a broader decision on whether the entire law was valid.
