LAST MINUTE NEWS: In the US House of Representatives voting, the impeachment clause in which President Donald Trump was accused of “incitement to rebellion” was accepted. The dismissal clause will be voted in the Senate after the House of Representatives. He became the first US President to be impeached against Trump for the second time.
Breaking news! In the vote held in the US House of Representatives, the impeachment clause in which President Donald Trump was accused of “incitement to revolt” was accepted.
Democrats in the US Congress took an important step against Trump, whom they blamed for the Congressional raid on January 6.
Trump was accused of “incitement to revolt” in the impeachment clause in the bill, which came to the agenda of the House of Representatives one week before the end of his term of office.
In the bill requested to be dismissed, Trump was held responsible for the violence that happened on that day due to his statements before the Congress raid.
After a long debate, in the General Assembly of the House of Representatives, the impeachment clause in which Trump was accused of “incitement to rebellion” was accepted with 232 votes against 197 no votes.
It was noteworthy that 10 Republican MPs also voted yes to the said dismissal clause.
Thus, Trump, the 45th President of the United States, was recorded as “the first president twice accused of impeachment” in the country’s history.
THE REAL TRIAL AT SENATO
It is not yet clear when the Senate, which constitutes the main jurisdiction of the impeachment process and will decide whether Trump is guilty, will hold the vote in question.
Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in the Senate stated in his last statement that the session for Trump’s trial will not take place before January 20. Thus, it became certain that Trump’s Senate trial will remain in the reign of Joe Biden.
For the Senate to convict Trump, at least 2 out of 100 senators, or at least 67 senators, must vote in that direction.
According to reports in the American media, a significant portion of Republicans in the Senate are considering voting that “Trump is not guilty”.
US President Trump was indicted in the House of Representatives in December 2019 for a phone call with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelenskiy, and was cleared at the Senate session in February 2020.
The Democrats in the House of Representatives adopted the bill last night, local time, calling on Mike Pence to impose the 25th additional article of the constitution and impeach Trump. Pence, on the other hand, made clear that he had no intention of using the substance in question.
