No matter what happens in the next year — or even the next five years — of Donald Trump’s time in office, the first paragraph of his political obituary will contain this sentence (or something close to it): “Trump was impeached by the House on December 18, 2019, becoming only the third president in history to be so admonished.”
Just to be accurate Donald Trump was narrowly made president by the Electoral College, not the American people. By nearly 3 million votes the majority of Americans tried to elect Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Clinton: 65,844,954 (48.2%)
Trump: 62,979,879 (46.1%) #ImpeachmentDay
