Tonight, the US House of Representatives voted in favor of a historic decision.
Donald Trump will be brought before the Supreme Court for the second time during his time as president, which has never happened before in the country’s history.
The indictment against Trump is based on his involvement in the events of last week, when the Capitol Congress House was stormed, and five people lost their lives.
Of the majority who voted for the indictment, at least ten were Republicans. This despite Kevin McCarthy, The Republican leader in the House of Representatives previously said that “Supreme Court law would be a mistake, which risks splitting the country.”
What happens now?
What will happen next is that the case is taken to the Senate – where the trial itself will also be held.
Two-thirds of all senators must vote against Trump in order to be convicted. That would probably mean he will never run for president again.
The verdict is expected to come before Trump resigns on January 20.
