The House of Representatives voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump on a single count of ‘incitement of insurrection,’ accusing him of whipping up a crowd of supporters to invade and wreak havoc upon the U.S. Capitol last week as lawmakers were counting Electoral College votes on January 6, 2021.
The House did so even though the president on January 6 specifically asked his supporters to be peaceful, and the time line reflects that those he was speaking to were not able to get from the Ellipse, where President Trump was speaking, to the Capitol in time for the breach of the building.
By a 232-197 vote, the divided House voted after two hours of intense debate to impeach Trump for the second time in his term of office. It was an unprecedented hastening of the process that many argue was unconstitutional and short circuited the President Trump’s rights to due process. This, even though his term is due to end with the Jan. 20 inauguration of Biden.
The vote was mostly according to party lines, and indeed all 222 Democrats in the House voted to impeach. But some 10 of the House’s 211 Republicans joined the Democrats to affirm the impeachment, including the party’s No. 3 in the chamber, Rep. Liz Cheney.
From the White House, President Trump had no immediate reaction. However, he earlier issued a brief statement insisting that he opposed violence among his supporters.
“In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be no violence, no lawbreaking and no vandalism of any kind. That is not what I stand for,” President Trump said. “I call on all Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You.”

That follows the quotable quotes, left-right headlines for tonight, and 2 of the 3 market graphics at the close. It is worth mentioning that the markets largely moved up today during these troubling events.
