WASHINGTON, D.C., January 13, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — The U.S. House of Representatives voted today to impeach President Donald J. Trump. He is now the first president in history to be impeached twice.
Ten Republican members joined all 222 Democrats in voting in favor of impeachment. They are:
Rep. Dan Newhouse of Washington
Rep. John Katko of New York
Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington
Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois
Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan
Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming
Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan
Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio
Rep. Tom Rice of South Carolina
Rep. David Valadao of California
The final vote tally was 232-197.
Democrat leadership in the House accused the President of “incitement of insurrection,” claiming that he played a role in protesters entering the U.S. Capitol building last Wednesday — an event that turned deadly.
“The president of the United States incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion against our common country,” asserted Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during today’s floor debate.
“He must go,” she continued. “He is a clear and present danger to the nation that we all love.”
Although the charges are political, not criminal, the article of impeachment stated that President Trump “repeatedly issued false statements asserting that the presidential election results were fraudulent and should not be accepted,” and that he “willfully made statements to the crowd that encouraged and foreseeably resulted in lawless action at the Capitol.”
“President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government, threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coequal branch of government,” continued the charge against the president.
For the next two years, state legislators will be the last line of defense against a radical, leftist ideology invading every aspect of our lives.
Our federal institutions - especially, the judiciary - utterly betrayed America and the Constitution in their dereliction of duty towards seeking the truth in the outcome of the 2020 election.
And now, with the Senate in the hands of the leftists, freedom-loving Americans must DEMAND that our state institutions, and every patriotic state legislator, do everything in his or her power to oppose the assaults on our Freedom, on Life, on Family, and on Faith which are sure to come from Washington, D.C. after January, 20th.
Please SIGN this petition and DEMAND that state legislators, in every state, PLEDGE to defend America from the tyranny of the Left.
January 6th, 2021 will be remembered by patriotic Americans, for generations to come, as a turning point.
January 6th will be remembered as conservative America's vote of no confidence in official institutions. Simultaneously a primordial cry for freedom and a tragic scene where the last vestiges of law and order succumbed under the reality of current events.
(After you have signed this petition, take a couple of minutes to personally contact your state legislators by email, Twitter, or by phone, using the Voter Voice tool provided to you by LifeSite.

Don't be mistaken: unlike so many politicians who are supposed to be on our side, the left almost always follows through with what they set out to do. So, yes, you can believe all of the predictions of impending doom for conservative causes.
Therefore, we must now DEMAND that our state legislators ACT to defend us from the federal government's future attempts to attack our freedoms, human life, the natural family, and our right to freely practise our faith.
And we, ourselves, must also be willing to strongly advocate for those freedoms, for life, for family and for our Faith.

Attention now turns to the U.S. Senate, where 50 Republican senators and 50 Democratic senators will vote either to acquit or to convict the president. Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reportedly has already signaled that he favors impeachment.
McConnell earlier said that he will not reconvene the Senate until January 19th, one day before Joe Biden’s inauguration, staving off an impeachment trial in the upper house while Trump is still in office.
President Trump is expected to finish out the final days of his term, although an impeachment after January 20 would likely mean Trump could not run for president again in 2024.
