BREAKING: Donald Trump impeached for 'incitement of insurrection'

The United States House of Representatives has impeached President Donald Trump for “incitement of insurrection” at last week’s Capitol riot.

He is the first president in US history to be twice impeached – to be charged with crimes by Congress.

The impeachment measure passed largely along party lines.

Mr Trump is due to leave office on 20 January, following his election defeat last November to Democrat Joe Biden.

Six Republicans said beforehand they would side with Democrats to impeach the president. But the majority of conservatives remained loyal to Mr Trump.

Last week, 139 Republicans voted against accepting the result of the 2020 election and Mr Trump’s defeat, BBC reported.
