On Wednesday, Donald Trump became the first President in US history to be impeached for a second time by the House. The move was in response to President Trump’s role in inciting last week’s riot at the US Capitol.
Ten Republicans broke rank to vote for impeachment, marking the largest number of lawmakers to ever vote to impeach a president from their own party.
Trump released a statement following the historic vote but did not mention impeachment.
