CNN’s Anderson Cooper revealed on Wednesday how Donald Trump will go down in the history books after being impeached for the second time in his term presidency.
“Seven days after choosing to be the first president to incite insurgency against the country and the Constitution he is sworn to defend, the president now has another first in his name,” Cooper said. “The first and only president to have been dismissed twice.”
“There have only been four presidential dismissals in the history of this nation. Donald John Trump owns half of it, and [it] will follow him to his grave, ”he added. “This is the face that future generations of school children will see when they go online and search for the word ‘impeachment’.”

The House voted 232-197 in favor of a single article of impeachment, which accuses Trump of “inciting insurgency” for his role in fomenting the riot on the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Trump supporters raped and vandalized the building, assaulted police, and demanded lawmakers overturn the election results won by Democrat Joe Biden.
Ten Republicans joined Democrats in the impeachment vote. He is now on trial in the Senate, where Trump’s fate is unclear. It is almost certain that the work of the Senate will not be completed until after Biden’s inauguration on January 20.
