Congress yesterday voted in a majority decision to impeach the president, moving forward with the case against Trump for several charges and high crimes.
In a divisive vote, the House ruled 229-198 to impeach the president, with no Republicans voting to support the motion.
Thought the articles have been passed, House speaker Pelosi stated that the House will not send the articles to the senate for a vote as of yet.
““We cannot name managers until we see what the process is on the Senate side, and we hope that will be soon,” she stated after the vote.
The president went on to slam the efforts to impeach him as false and a “witch hunt”, speaking both at a rally in Michigan and over social media, stating “SUCH ATROCIOUS LIES BY THE RADICAL LEFT, DO NOTHING DEMOCRATS. THIS IS AN ASSAULT ON AMERICA, AND AN ASSAULT ON THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!!!!” in a tweet yesterday.
Republican senators also slammed the process as biased and promised to vote it down in the senate.
As of today, Trump is still the president, and can not be removed until the articles are voted on in the senate.
