President Donald Trump impeached by House

President Trump
WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald J. Trump has been impeached by the House of Representatives on charges of abuse of power and obstructing Congress. The votes fell almost entirely along party lines: 229-197.

Trump will next face a trial in the Senate, which is run by Republicans and will likely acquit him of the two charges.

The White House responded to today’s impeachment outcome with the following statement:

Today marks the culmination in the House of one of the most shameful political episodes in the history of our Nation. Without a single Republican vote or any proof of wrongdoing, Democrats pushed illegitimate articles of impeachment through the House of Representatives.

The American people are not fooled by this disgraceful behavior. They understand fairness, due process, and substantial, reliable evidence are required before any American should be charged with wrongdoing—and certainly before impeaching a duly elected President.

The President is confident the Senate will restore regular order, fairness, and due process, and will continue to work tirelessly to address the needs and priorities of the American people, as he has since the day he took office.

Thursday morning, President Trump himself tweeted, “I got Impeached last night without one Republican vote being cast with the Do Nothing Dems on their continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt in American history. Now the Do Nothing Party want to Do Nothing with the Articles & not deliver them to the Senate, but it’s Senate’s call!”

Previously, Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were impeached. They were not removed from office – that requires conviction in a trial held in the Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and top Democrats are already haggling over how a trial would proceed. The House must deliver the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate in order for the trial to proceed, and there is no timeline in place for that delivery to take place.
