The U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach Donald Trump on Wednesday afternoon just days before his presidency ends, with some Republicans backing the effort, including the party’s highest-ranking woman in the chamber.
Trump is the only U.S. president to be impeached twice. The vote was 232 to 197, with 10 Republicans joining Democrats to support impeachment over Trump’s “incitement of insurrection” ahead of and during a riot at the U.S. Capitol last week.
Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming—the highest-ranking GOP woman in the House, the only woman in her party’s leadership and the only member of Republican leadership to back impeachment so far—was one of them.
