The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to impeach President Donald Trump for “high crimes and misdemeanors” for inciting an insurrection against the federal government at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Wyoming Congresswoman and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney was one of 10 House Republicans who voted for impeachment. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.
Congresswoman Cheney, shortly after voting for impeachment, held a conference call with members of the Wyoming media. Cheney began the call explaining why she voted to impeach the President.
Cheney said she views her vote as one that was not partisan.
The Congresswoman said “we are living through a very dangerous moment for our nation.”
The House, by a vote 232 to 197, approved a single article of impeachment that charges President Trump with “inciting violence against the United States” and requests his immediate removal from office and the disqualification from ever holding office again. It is the first time in American history that a president has been impeached twice.
