WASHINGTON, D.C. — As of 4:26 p.m., the U.S. House of Representatives has reached the required number of votes to impeach President Donald Trump.

This will mark the first time a president has been impeached twice.

As it stands, the vote is 217-192 in favor of impeachment, with all 192 votes against coming from republicans and 208 of the votes in favor coming from democrats.

Only one article of impeachment, "incitement of insurrection," is contained in the resolution.

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) implied earlier today that the senate trial, which is what prevented Trump from leaving office following last year's impeachment, will not be conducted until after President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in Jan. 20.

McConnell hinted to CNN and the New York Times that he is in favor of impeachment, which would put him in company with the nine House republicans and others who look to rebuild the Republican Party in a post-Trump world.
