US President Donald Trump is the first President to be impeached twice, with 232 votes in favour of impeachment and 197 against.
Impeachment proceedings were brought forward by Democrats after last Wednesday’s riots in the US Capitol, which left five dead.
“Today in a bipartisan way, the House demonstrated that no one is above the law, not even the President of the United States,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
“That Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our country and that once again we honour that oath of office to protect and defend the constitution of the United States,” she continued.
After the impeachment was passed by the House, Trump released a video on the official White House Twitter account where he condemned the violence at the Capitol last week.
