President Trump accuses other countries of lying about number of Coronavirus deaths

One week after inciting a violent assault on the US Capitol, Donald Trump has become the only president in the nation’s history to have been impeached twice, with a senate trial to follow.

On Wednesday, a majority of elected officials from the House of Representatives voted to formally impeach Trump paving the way for a historic second trial of the President of the United States.

The threshold of 217 votes in favour of impeaching Trump has been crossed, as the Democratic-majority House continues to vote on the passage of the indictment against the Republican billionaire, in a federal capital under high tension.

Ten Republicans have already voted with Democrats in favour of impeachment.

The trial of Donald Trump, by senators, is expected to take place after he leaves the White House on January 20.

More details soon.
