President Donald Trump Has Been Impeached
President Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, has become the third president in the history of the nation to be impeached.
The impeachment came on Wednesday night just after 8 p.m. when the House voted 230 – 197 to impeach the president on Article 1, Abuse of Power.
On Article 2, Obstruction of Justice, the vote was 229 Yay and 198 Nay.
It was officially the most partisan impeachment vote in the history of the United States with 230 Democrats, no Republicans and one independent voting to impeach and every Republican and two Democrats voting against.
One of the Democrats who voted against the impeachment was Rep. Jeff Van Drew who has declared his intention to become a Republican.
Rep. Justin Amash, a former Republican who is now an independent, voted in favor of the impeachment of the president.
It came as the president was on the stage for a rally in Battle Creek, Michigan for his 2020 presidential campaign.
He will now campaign for president as an impeached president.
The votes came after a full day of heated debate in the House where Republicans and Democrats traded blows.
The articles will then go to the Senate for a trial that will begin in January and will likely be just as partisan as the House vote was.
There is almost no chance that the president will be removed by the Republican controlled Senate and it is unlikely that many, if any, Republicans will side with Democrats.
Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader and Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham have bragged that they will not be impartial jurors.
