COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Lawmakers in the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time Wednesday.
The impeachment makes Trump the first U.S. president in the history of the U.S. to be impeached twice. State representatives and community activists are weighing in on the historic impeachment following the insurrection in D.C.
“As president of the United States, he took an oath of office to uphold the Constitution and protect us as Americans from any danger, foreign and domestic, and he sat there in the White House and watched that chaos at the Capitol, and did absolutely nothing,” said activist Teddy Reese.
Six Georgia Democrats, including Congressman Sanford Bishop voted yes. Congressman Drew Ferguson and seven other Republicans voted no.
