Trump's Second Impeachment Is Most Bipartisan Impeachment Vote in U.S. History

Donald Trump is impeached for the second time, making him the first president to be impeached twice in U.S. history.

The House of Representatives vote on Wednesday (January 13), based on his role in the incitement of the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol building one week before, also marks the most bipartisan impeachment in history.

Ten House Republicans sided with Democrats to charge Trump with “incitement of insurrection.” Those ten Republicans are: Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the chair of the House Republican Conference and the third highest-ranking GOP lawmaker, Rep. Jaime Herrera-Beutler of Washington, Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio, Rep. John Katko of New York, Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan, Rep. Dan Newhouse of Washington, Rep. Tom Rice of South Carolina, Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan and Rep. David Valadao of California.

Five House Democrats voted to impeach President Bill Clinton in the late 1990s. No Democrats voted to impeach President Andrew Johnson in 1868, and President Richard Nixon resigned from office before he was formally impeached.

Trump Impeached Again, Becoming First President to Be Impeached Twice in History

President Trump is impeached again.

The House just voted 232-197 to impeach the President of the United States following a violent takeover of the U.S. Capitol by his supporters, making this the second time he has been impeached, and the only U.S. President to be impeached twice.

The impeachment was based on charges of a single article: “incitement of insurrection,” based on his role in last week’s riots that resulted in the death of 5 people.

Now that the vote is done, the Senate conducts a trial, which is expected to take place after he leaves office, via CNN.

“New President Joe Biden will be asking the Senate to vote on his Cabinet nominees and act on legislation to address the Covid pandemic as well as relief for Americans hurt by the troubled economy. In 2020, Senate business ground to a complete halt during the trial. This time, incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is hoping to pursue a half-day schedule to conduct the trial part of the day and business the rest of the day,” the news outlet reports.

“The charges this time are much simpler to convey and understand, however. It should still take some number of days with Chief Justice John Roberts presiding and senators sitting in judgment. When both of the new Democratic senators from Georgia are seated, it will take 17 Republicans voting with Democrats to reach a two-thirds majority and convict Trump.”

Impeaching Trump in the House does not remove him from office. A majority of senators would have to approve an additional vote to bar him from the presidency in the future, which could also cost his over $200,000 yearly pension.

Trump was banned across almost all social media in the past few days for inciting violence.

YouTube Bans Donald Trump's Account For A 'Minimum' Of 7 Days

YouTube has jumped on the bandwagon of banning Donald Trump from the platform almost a week after the Capitol riots.

The video platform issued a statement about the ban, via Variety.

“After review, and in light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, we removed new content uploaded to Donald J. Trump’s channel for violating our policies. It now has its 1st strike & is temporarily prevented from uploading new content for a *minimum* of 7 days,” the statement shared.

YouTube stated that it had just removed a video that the current President’s team uploaded.

The video site added, “Given the ongoing concerns about violence, we will also be indefinitely disabling comments on President Trump’s channel, as we’ve done to other channels where there are safety concerns found in the comments section.”

YouTube was called out by several celebrities, include Borat 2‘s Sacha Baron Cohen, for being late to ban Trump.

Twitter and Facebook banned Trump from being on their platforms just days after the riots.

However, Trump did try and return to Twitter. See what happened…

Lana Del Rey Defends Herself & Her Quotes About Trump: 'This Is My Story' - Watch (Video)

Lana Del Rey is defending herself.

The 35-year-old “Lust for Life” singer-songwriter issued a video statement on Tuesday (January 12) following a slew of headlines regarding her interview with BBC Radio 1, during which she addressed Donald Trump and the U.S. Capitol riot, suggesting that Trump is so deeply lacking in empathy, he might be unaware that he incited the rot.

During the video, she spoke about her opinion about Trump‘s lack of empathy, as well as her own upbringing, as well as misperceptions about her politics.

“I really don’t appreciate being painted as some white Republican who’s always been given everything and supports the incite of the Capitol riot. I grew up struggling, working my ass off, we had nothing, period,” she explained.

“I personally don’t get it. I just think sometimes because of the way I look, it’s easy to paint this picture, but man, did I struggle to become the genuine singer-songwriter I am,” she said.

“People do not last a long time in my workplace…it’s fun to tear people down, but it really discourages them from moving onto their next project,” she added.

“This is my story, I’m telling it…I’m the wrong person to come for when it comes to not being inclusive or liberal. Not that I ever focused on either one. I always just focused on the music, but if people want to make it political, I’m down, but listen to the entirety of the 40-minute interview. So…I don’t want to have to focus on this, but it is what it is. I’d love to get the point one day where we just talk about the music, but until that day, I want you to know my story.”

“Talk about it. Get it out of your system. And then GFYS,” she captioned the post. She also clarified her comments earlier in the day, calling out some outlets in particular.

Lana Del Rey Clarifies Her Comments About Trump & Capitol Riots

Lana Del Rey is making her point clear.

The 35-year-old Born to Die superstar got candid on social media after a BBC Radio 1 interview, during which she addressed Trump and the pro-Trump riots at the Capitol building days ago.

During the chat, Lana described the attempted coup at the U.S. Capitol as “disassociated rage” and suggested that Trump didn’t knowingly incite the riot, a point which she later clarified on Twitter on Tuesday (January 12).

“Just to take a moment to say that what I was describing w the bbc was that Trump is so significantly impaired that he may not know what he was doing due to his significant lack of empathy and the wider ranging problem is the issue of sociopathy and narcissism in America,” she wrote.

“I’ll say it again I don’t appreciate the larger magazines taking my well-intentioned and believe it or not liberal comments out of context. It’s actually what I sing about quite often. It’s what I’ve been condemned for saying. You can listen to the entire interview,” she continued.

“I also want to say that I don’t appreciate complex magazine inferring that I thought it was right to storm the capital. After my long term relationship with them and exclusive interviews over the last 11 years I think it’s pathetic – if Rolling Stone chimes in-same goes for them,” she added.

Here’s more about what she said during the interview.
