Trump Becomes The First President In U.S. History To Be IMPEACHED TWICE!

​ ​ ​ ​

Trump has been impeached again, making him the first president in U.S. history to be impeached TWICE! The House charged the president with "incitement of insurrection" for his role in the violent riot Trump supporters carried out at the U.S. Capitol. Deets inside…

We’re exactly one week away from the post-Trump era. But before Trump is officially no longer the President of the United States, there’s some unfinished business.

The House just impeached Trump for a SECOND time, making him the first president in U.S. history to be impeached. Bloop! He was charged with "incitement of insurrection" for his role in the violent & deadly riot Trump supporters carried out at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th. The failed coup attempt resulted in five deaths, including on Capitol police officer.

As you know, Trump instructed his supporters to storm the federal building to "stop the steal" of the 2020 presidential election. He denied it.

The vote to impeach Trump passed in the Democratic-controlled House, 232 to 197. Ten Republicans voted AGAINST Trump.

Watch below:

Before the vote, freshman Congresswoman Cori Bush (D-MO) took the floor to denounce white supremacy and she DRAGGED the “white supremacist-in-chief” by his extensions. It was a “mic drop” moment and Republicans were “boo’n” like hit dogs! Check it:

Checkmate.

The House will send the article of impeachment to the Senate so they can kick off the process of holding a trial to determine if Trump should be convicted. It’s likely the “trial” will not happen until after Trump is out of office (after January 20th), but we WILL see a trial for Trump. He can still be impeached and removed after he’s no longer in office. This is important because if convicted, he will be prevented from running for public office again for the rest of his life.

Here’s what else he’ll lose if convicted:

pensions equal to the annual pay of a White House cabinet member ($221,400 in 2021)

starting six months after leaving office, a governmental allowance for an office, staffing and equipment;

reimbursed travel expenses of up to $1 million annually for the ex-president and up to two staffers; spouses are allowed to $500,000 for travel;

lifetime security services provided by the Secret Service;

health benefits through the government’s Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, but only if they had five years of federal employment (Trump, like Jimmy Carter, would not qualify with only four years of civilian service);

funerals with full honors and the option of being buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

In December 2019,  Trump was impeached by the House where he was charged with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

It’s unclear what will happen in the Senate once the trial kicks off.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reportedly told his Republican colleagues Wednesday afternoon that he remains undecided on whether he will vote to convict the president.

“While the press has been full of speculation, I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell wrote in a letter to his colleagues.

We're ready for President-elect Joe Biden & VP-elect Kamala Harris to get us back to normalcy.
