NEW: Due to the Domestic Terrorist attack on our Capitol on January 6, 2021, the House of Representatives impeached Donald Trump(again), on January 13, 2021. The charge was “Incitement of insurrection”. The senate trial on this new impeachment article will be forthcoming in the coming weeks.
What exactly is impeachment? In U.S. History, only two other presidents have been impeached. Those presidents were Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. Neither were convicted during a trial and finished out their terms of office. President, Richard Nixon, was going to be impeached but he resigned, pressured by members of his own Republican party, before he was impeached.
