President Donald Trump has been impeached again barely one week to the end of his tenure. 

President Trump lost his re-election bid in November and failed in other steps he took to get a rejection of the election of his rival, Joe Biden.

217 members, including at least nine Republicans voted to have the president removed while 192 voted to have him complete his tenure. 24 members abstained.

The impeachment resolution charges Trump with a single article, "incitement of insurrection," for his role in last week's deadly Capitol riot.

This has put Mr. Trump in history as the only President to be impeached twice 

The decision of whether he will leave office is now in the hands of the Senate, where Vice President Mike Pence leads. 

Mr. Pence has already declared no interest in removing the President before the 20th of June.
