White House Issues Statement Following President Donald Trump’s Impeachment

The White House has released a statement describing the impeachment of President Donald Trump “one of the most shameful political episodes in the history of our nation.” The White House said:

Today marks the culmination in the House of one of the most shameful political episodes in the history of our Nation. Without receiving a single Republican vote, and without providing any proof of wrongdoing, Democrats pushed illegitimate articles of impeachment against the President through the House of Representatives. Democrats have chosen to proceed on this partisan basis in spite of the fact that the President did absolutely nothing wrong. Indeed, weeks of hearings have proved that he did nothing wrong.

Trump becomes the third president in the history of the United States of America to be impeached.

The House of Representatives passed both articles of impeachment: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress with the vote on the second article of impeachment, obstruction of Congress, split almost entirely along party lines.

Here’s the final vote count:

  • Democrats: 230 yeas
  • Republicans: 197 nays

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, was again the only Democrat to vote present (neutral).

The process now advances to the Senate, where State Senators judge the President in a trial.
