House impeaches Trump a Second Time, But Conviction and Removal are Unlikely; Here are the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump, and LOTS of related stories

House impeaches Trump a second time, but conviction and removal are unlikely:
The House impeached President Trump for the second time Wednesday, charging him for behavior they believe caused the violent Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol that left five dead, dozens injured, and the historic building defaced and damaged.
Ten House Republicans joined all House Democrats to pass a single impeachment article accusing Trump of inciting an insurrection.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, must now decide when to send the article to the Senate, which is not scheduled to be in session until Jan. 19 and is unlikely to consider it until after Trump leaves office.
Trump’s term ends on Jan. 20 at 12 p.m.
But Democrats made the case during the one-day proceeding that Trump is too dangerous to remain in office a moment longer, coming to the floor to suggest Trump may incite additional violence, move to pardon the protesters charged in the Capitol siege, or even start a nuclear war during his final days in office. --->READ MORE HERE
Here are the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump:
Ten House Republicans joined with Democrats to impeach President Trump for "incitement of insurrection" following last week's siege on the U.S. Capitol, making the second impeachment of a lame-duck president a bipartisan effort.
Other Republicans warned that impeachment would only serve to further divide the country and enrage Trump supporters due to there being only one week left of Trump's presidency.
The number of GOP defections was lower than some theorized it could be. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise told reporters immediately following the vote that Republicans are trying to “focus on the transition” and “ratcheting down the rhetoric and not settling political scores.”
Here are the Republicans who voted "yes" for impeachment on Wednesday: --->READ MORE HERE
