The US House of Representatives has impeached President Donald Trump for “incitement of insurrection” at last week’s Capitol riot, making him the first President of the country to be impeached twice.
Ten Republicans sided with Democrats to impeach the president by 232-197.
Trump, a Republican, will now face a trial in the Senate, where if convicted he could face being barred from ever holding office again.
He will leave office on 20 January, following his election defeat last November to Democrat Joe Biden.
The Democratic-controlled House voted after several hours of impassioned debate on Wednesday.
The president was accused by Congress of inciting the storming of the Capitol with his 6 January speech to a rally outside the White House.
He urged his supporters to “peacefully and patriotically” make their voices heard, but also to “fight like hell” against an election that he told them had been stolen.
