Donald Trump has been impeached for a second time in his first term as president – with all Minnesota House Democrats voting in favor.
The House voted to impeach President Trump for incitement of insurrection by a vote of 232-197, which comes after he encouraged his supporters to march on the U.S. Capitol while legislators voted to certify Joe Biden's election win.
Democratic Reps. Angie Craig, Betty McCollum, Ilhan Omar, and Dean Phillips voted in favor of impeachment.
Unlike his first impeachment, this time around there was bipartisan votes as 10 Republicans joined Democrats in voting to impeach.
None of Minnesota's GOP House caucus – Reps. Tom Emmer, Michelle Fischbach, Jim Hagedorn, and Pete Stauber – were among them.
In a statement, Fischbach said: "With fewer than seven days remaining in this administration, we should be focused on moving forward and getting back to work on behalf of the American people.”
Democratic Rep. Jason Crow said Wednesday that he had spoken with several GOP members who said they wanted to vote to impeach but feared for their family's safety after receiving threats from the president's supporters. It's not clear who this referred to however, and no Republican has spoken out about this.
The Senate will now hold impeachment hearings and a vote, though current Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has suggested that a trial won't happen until after Trump has left office on Jan. 20.
