I did not think I would be sitting in front of a computer writing this story but here we are. As a publication that does not cover much politics unless it is an unprecedented story, and today is that day. The US House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump for a second time due to his actions last week for the insurrection mounted by domestic terrorists. The vote would become the most bipartisan vote in an impeachment trial with 10 republicans joining 222 democrats against 197 no votes from Republicans.
As of now the article of impeachment has not made its way to the senate for trial. But this would be the first time a president would go on trial for conviction due to an impeachment. However, the situation has happened to lower levels of government convicting after their time in office came to an end.
McConnell said the senate will not look at a conviction trial until after the Biden Inauguration on the 20th. However, McConnell will be the senate minority leader for the senate trial.
This is a crazy year and it’s just the 13th of January.
