Well, it has finally happened, mates. After a *long* (and I mean *LONG*) four years in office, President Donald Trump is finally facing his second impeachment.
The Democrats have officially started the process overnight, introducing one article of impeachment, in which they have accused the President of inciting insurrection over last week’s violent Capitol attack.
“President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of Government,” the article of impeachment reads.
“He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperilled a coordinate branch of Government.”
A vote is expected on the matter as early as Wednesday, which is a good sign considering we’re quickly running out of Trump administration days (not like I’m counting or anything). The vote will be raised to the House of Representatives – which is Democrat-controlled – so there’s a pretty solid chance he’ll actually be convicted.
If you remember back to 2019 when he was impeached the first time, he wasn’t convicted because the Senate (Republican-controlled) voted against it. However, it’s worth noting that if the House *does* vote to convict him, the Senate will also have to vote on the decision.
If convicted, President Donald Trump would be the only president in US history to be impeached twice. Somebody needs to buy him a trophy or something for being truly the shittiest man to ever hold the top job.
Thankfully, if Trump is convicted, it could prevent him from ever running for presidency or any public office position in future.
Regardless, he will only be in office until the 20th of January, so mark your calendars because we’re just a few short days away from leaving this bullshit behind us (hopefully).
