UPDATED: U.S. House votes to impeach Trump second time
WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKBT) — The U.S. House of Representatives voted Wednesday to impeach President Donald Trump a second time.
The vote, which makes him the first U.S. president to be impeached twice, is forceful rebuke after Trump egged on supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol.
A majority of the House of Representatives voted to impeach the president Wednesday on charges of inciting an insurrection. Along with nearly every Democrat in the House, 10 Republicans voted to impeach President Trump. The final vote was 232 to 197 with 4 Republicans not voting.
It comes after hours of debate on the House floor Wednesday morning, after Vice President Mike Pence wrote a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Tuesday night saying he would not invoke the 25th amendment to remove Trump from office.
