For the first time in American history, a President has been impeached twice. The House on Wednesday voted 232-197 to impeach President Donald Trump on one single charge of "incitement of insurrection".

Ten Republicans voted to impeach the President which means that this impeachment is the most bi-partisan impeachment vote ever in the United States. In 1998, only five democrats voted to impeach President Bill Clinton. The ten Republicans to vote for impeachment was led by Congresswoman Liz Cheney according to FOX News. The following are the ten Republicans to vote for impeachment.

Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming

Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio

Rep. Jamie Herrera-Beutler of Washington

Rep. John Katko of New York

Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois

Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan

Rep. Dan Newhouse of Washington

Rep. Tom Rice of South Carolina

Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan

Rep. David Valadao of California

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already said that there is no way a trial can happen in the United States Senate before January 20th. That means, if the Senate does move to a trial, it would be a trial of a former President. The incoming Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer has said that there will be a trial in the Senate. In order for Trump to be convicted, 17 Republicans would have to vote to convict him in the Senate. A former President has never gone through an impeachment trial. If convicted in the Senate, President Trump could be banned from running for office again.
