The House of Representatives has voted to impeach Donald Trump, making him the first president to be impeached twice in the nation’s history.
It was also an unprecedented bipartisan impeachment, with 10 Republicans voting
in favor, at 232 to 197.
North Coast Rep. Jared Huffman was among those supporting House Resolution 24 to impeach Trump for incitement of insurrection after the deadly siege at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6
"Madam Speaker, history is watching and saving the receipts. Today, my colleagues across the aisle must choose which side of a very bright line they want to be recorded on, for all time," Huffman said. On one side: lies, sedition, inciting and supporting insurrection and domestic terrorism. The other side: your oath of office, the constitution, democracy, and decency.
"There’s no middle ground. Today we make history forever," he continued. "So choose well. A vote to impeach Donald Trump means years from now, you can look your grandchildren in the eye and say, in that historic moment, I did the right thing."
