Agree 232 vs Disagree 197… 10 Republican dropout votes
Allegedly’inciting civil rebellion’ for incitement to invade Congress
Second impeachment of the House of Representatives… First in U.S. history
|[워싱턴=AP/뉴시스]U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in the process of voting on an impeachment bill for inciting civil war against President Donald Trump at the Washington DC Capitol on the 13th (local time). 2021.1.14.|
[서울=뉴시스] Reporter Shin Jung-won = The US House of Representatives passed a bill of impeachment against President Donald Trump on the 13th (local time). This marks the first time in US history that Trump has been impeached twice in the House of Representatives.
On this day, the House of Representatives passed a bill of impeachment against President Trump with 232 votes in favor and 197 votes against him. The abstention is 5 votes.
While all 222 Democrats voted for it, 10 voted for the Republican Party.
The charges brought against President Trump that day are one of the incitements of civil war. It is alleged that the U.S. Congress incited pro-Trump protesters on the 6th, when the 2020 presidential election results were finalized, causing an unprecedented congressional invasion riot.
The US Democratic Party stated in the impeachment bill initiated on the 11th that “President Trump instigated violence against the US government and committed felony and misdemeanor crimes (requiring the impeachment prosecution).” President Trump threatened US national security, democracy and constitution by repeatedly making false claims to overturn President Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election and inciting congressional invasion riots.
President Trump has been disagreeing with last year’s 11·3 presidential election suspicion, filing lawsuits in rivals where Biden-elect slightly won. However, it was virtually lost, and in the electoral corps election on the 14th of last month, Biden-elect secured a 306 electoral corps, and the victory was formalized.
President Trump has also been disgraced as the first president in US history to be impeached by the House of Representatives second.
The ball went to the Senate. There were plans to send the time of sending to the Senate immediately and after Biden-elect 100 days after taking office.
In order for the Senate to pass the impeachment bill, two-thirds of the 100 senators, or 67 people, are required.
The House of Representatives passed the first impeachment bill, triggered by the so-called “Ukrainian scandal,” in December 2019. The charges at the time were allegations of abuse of power and interfering with Congress. The impeachment bill was rejected by the Republican-dominated Senate.
