Biden tweets about impeachment vote, reminds Senate of 'other urgent business'

Twenty House members from NY voted in favor of impeaching including Rep. John Katko, R-Camillus.

In the end, they decided making Trump a twice-impeached president, despite coming in the final week of his presidency, was their most effective move.

The single article of impeachment accuses the president of inciting the riot that broke out at the US Capitol after he spoke to a crowd of thousands at a pro-Trump rally near the White House on Wednesday morning.

Trump will no longer be the USA president as of January 20, so what's the point of impeaching him now?

"I hope that the Senate leadership will find a way to deal with their constitutional responsibilities on impeachment while also working on the other urgent business of this nation", he said in a statement shortly after the House vote.

That group included 10 Republicans, who belong to the same political party as Trump.

The House voted 232 to 197 for impeachment. The party alleges it has received harsh comments from its members, saying, "Our telephone has not stopped ringing, our email is filling up, and our website has seen more traffic than at any previous time". "We are all responsible", he said. "We are receiving the message loud and clear that what happened yesterday is a true travesty for Wyoming and the country". "Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies", she said on Newsmax.

She said, "The President could have immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence".

"There has never been a greater betrayal by a president of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution", she wrote in a statement that was frequently quoted by Democrats during the impeachment debate.

In a primetime speech, he is expected to address a twin crisis exceeding even the challenge that faced him as vice president to Barack Obama when they assumed office in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. At the time, only Democratic lawmakers voted to impeach.

"We consider his action ill-informed". In the Senate, Republicans still have control until two newly elected Democrats from Georgia take their seats and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, who will wield the tiebreaking vote in the 50-50 chamber, is sworn in alongside Biden.

"The president of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion against our common country", House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, said on the House floor before the vote.

"For that reason, I can not sit by without taking action".

Rice is from a SC district where Trump has heavy support.

So Democrats introduced a resolution on Wednesday that charged the president with "incitement of insurrection".

"Based on the facts before me, I have to go with my gut and vote my conscience".

Many Democrats pushed for a second Trump impeachment after a mob of his supporters stormed the Capitol on January 6 in an unsuccessful attempt to stop the certification of Biden's Electoral College win.

"I have backed this President through thick and thin for four years". I campaigned for him and voted for him twice.

"But, this utter failure is inexcusable".

Others said that Trump's threat to national security and democracy could continue into the future, and that a second impeachment could be a step along the way to barring Trump from running again. "That actually reemboldened me because I believe that we are fighting, you know, against a lot of misinformation, where even people that are Christians have been misled".

He said, "I've heard from friends that don't want to be friends with me anymore".
