House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced that the House had voted 232-197 to impeach President Donald Trump for “incitement of insurrection” following the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Ten Republicans joined Democratic members of the chamber in supporting the impeachment. Democrats pursued a quick second impeachment a week after Trump gave a speech they say incited insurrection. On Jan. 6, while Congress was in the process of counting electoral votes and certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win, a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol, clashed with police, and forced lawmakers to pause their sessions and evacuate to safety.
