Becomes Third President of the United States Impeached

WASHINGTON — Donald J. Trump has become only the third president of the United States to be impeached by Congress. Trump is the first-term president to be impeached. The divided Congress voted mainly along party-lines on both Articles of Impeachment.

The first Article of Impeachment on abuse of power; the second Article was for obstruction of Congress.

Rep. Deb Haaland (D-N.M.), a tribal citizen Laguna Pueblo, speaks in support of impeachment on Wednesday evening.

The vote came after an 8-hour debate that allowed Democrats to make their case in favor of impeachment and GOP members debating why they think Trump should not have been impeached.

Shortly before 7 pm, Rep. Deb Haaland (D-N.M.), one of the first American Indian women to serve in Congress, addressed the House to voice her support of impeachment.
