Trump first President in US history to be impeached twice

The US House of Representatives on Wednesday impeached President Donald Trump for “inciting” last week’s deadly violence at Capitol Hill.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed the impeachment making Trump the first US president to be impeached twice.

Congress voted 232 to 197 on the single article of impeachment charging Trump with “incitement of insurrection”. Trump now faces a trial in the Senate. 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has not yet announced the dates for the trial. He said a trial is unlikely before Biden becomes the president of the country.

In December 2019, House of Representatives had approved the articles of impeachment against Trump, charging him of pressuring Ukraine to smear Joe Biden, using nearly $400 million in military aid as leverage.
