Remember, let’s be polite; let’s be respectful, but most of all, let’s be outspoken.

On January 13, 2021, the United States House of Representatives impeached President Trump, charging him with “incitement of insurrection.” The final vote count was 232 in favor and 197 not in favor. Furthermore, the count was nearly based on party lines, where every House Democrat and 10 House Republicans voted to impeach, and the remaining Republicans voted not to impeach.

The impeachment is significant for two reasons: it is the first time a US president was impeached twice, and it shows that President Trump is losing control of his own Republican party because 10 Republican congressmen broke party lines to vote for an article impeachment against him.

In La Cañada, 156 La Cañada students voted on an Outspoken Oppa poll that asked, “Should Trump be Impeached for Inciting Insurrection.” After 24 hours, 75% voted yes, and 25% voted no.

While the House swiftly impeached the president, the Senate is not set to reconvene until January 19, a day before President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated. In a public statement, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already stated that there is simply is not enough time to hold a senate impeachment trial.


Therefore, it is likely President Trump will remain in office until his last day on January 20, 2021.

Remember, let’s be polite; let’s be respectful, but most of all, let’s be outspoken.
