The US President has being impeached for the second time for ‘inciting’ US recent Capitol riot.

The House resolution, which passed by a vote of 232-197 on Wednesday afternoon, states that Trump’s actions and remarks ahead of the storming of the Capitol building in Washington, DC incited the rioters. 

"Today, in a bipartisan way, the House demonstrated that no one is above the law, not even the President of the United States," Nancy Pelosi.

 The house speaker Pelosi also said, that "Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our country". 

The President party (Republicans) Ten members also joined 222 Democrats in voting to impeach Trump, making the vote a bipartisan rebuke of the president’s attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. 

The impeachment article states that in the months before January 6, Trump repeated false claims of widespread election fraud and said the results should not be accepted. 

He also, willfully made statements that, in context, encouraged and foreseeably resulted in lawless action at the Capitol, such as: ‘if you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country any more,'” the article states. 

Recall that, the riot at the Capitol on January 6 left five people dead and sent shockwaves across the US and the world, spurring Democratic Party legislators to launch an impeachment push against Trump in his final days in the White House. 

The Capitol was stormed after Trump delivered an inflammatory speech to a crowd of his supporters that had gathered in protest against Congress’ certification of US President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory.
