Hollywood celebrities erupted in joy late Wednesday after the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives voted for the second time to impeach President Donald Trump. Ten Republican lawmakers broke ranks and sided with Democrats in the left’s unceasing effort to remove the commander in chief from office.
As Breitbart News reported, the House voted 232 to 197, with 10 Republicans supporting the measure. It remains unclear what effect the vote will have on the president’s final seven days in office. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has stated that he believes the president committed an impeachable offense, but added that he won’t reconvene the Senate before January 19, the president’s final full day in office.
The Democrat-controlled House previously voted to impeach the president in late 2019. But their efforts to remove him ultimately failed when the Republican-controlled Senate voted against impeachment.
The latest effort comes a week after a crowd of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in a display of rage over what they have argued to be a rigged election against the president. While the commander in chief never encouraged his supporters to engage in physical violence — and even urged them to disband and return home “in peace” — many lawmakers have nevertheless blamed the president and used the riot as an opportunity to revive impeachment proceedings.
