The House made history Wednesday by impeaching a president for a second time, indicting President Trump a week before he leaves office for inciting a riot with false claims of a stolen election that led to the storming of the Capitol and five deaths.

Unlike Trump’s first impeachment, which proceeded with almost no GOP support, Wednesday’s effort attracted 10 Republicans, including Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 party leader in the House. The Senate now appears likely to hold a trial after Trump’s departure, an unprecedented scenario that could end with lawmakers barring him from holding the presidency again.

The final vote was 232 to 197.

One of the final dramas of a tumultuous presidency, the impeachment unfolded against the backdrop of near-chaos in the House and uncertainty about where Trump’s exit leaves the GOP. Democrats and Republicans exchanged accusations and name-calling throughout the day, while Trump loyalists were livid at fellow Republicans who broke ranks — especially Cheney — leaving the party’s leadership shaken.

The house impeached William Belknap, he resigned & the senate held a trial.

William W. Belknap

Starting on April 5, 1876, Belknap was tried by the Senate. For several weeks Senators argued over whether the Senate had jurisdiction to put Belknap on trial since he had already resigned office in March.[88] Belknap's defense managers argued that the Senate had no jurisdiction;[88] the Senate ruled by a vote of 37–29 that it did.[89][88] Belknap was charged with five articles of impeachment, and the Senate listened to over 40 witnesses.[3] With 40 votes needed for conviction, the Senate voted 35 to 25 to convict Belknap, with one Senator not voting, thus acquitting Belknap of all charges by failing to reach the required two-thirds majority.[3][88][90] All Senators agreed that Belknap took the money from Marsh, but 23 who voted for acquittal believed that the Senate did not have jurisdiction.[88][90] Grant's speedy acceptance of Belknap's resignation undoubtedly saved him from conviction.

People are interpreting that "only" 10 Pubs defecting means that Trump still rules the party with an iron fist.  If the media reports are accurate, however, the real reason is that nobody wants to be murdered by insurrectionists.

Pres. Donald Trump is the only American I know of that is not able to get due process. What's up with that?

Impeachment is a political process for removing from office a public official engaged in serious misconduct. It does not involve criminal punishment (Trump won't be locked up or have his property taken if the Senate convicts him), so the due process concerns in a criminal case do not apply.

Pew Research Center: Trump "job approval now stands at just 29%, down 9 percentage points since August and the lowest of his presidency."

Absolutely they are real.  The whole world got to see how real the threats are to those who oppose the revolution.

That's why the whole bunch of them need to be ground to powder beneath the heel of justice.  No mercy, no deals, just the harshest possible punishments for their crimes.

I can supply a litany of names of Americans you should be very familiar with by now, that did not receive due process prior to being executed under force of law. 

And has been said, impeachment is purely political, not judicial, with a Constitutional process defined.

So, is your ignorance willful, or...
