Trump denounces violence after second House impeachment

New York, Jan 15 (TIWN) After the US House of Representatives made history impeaching him for a second time, outgoing President Donald Trump has finally denounced unequivocally the January 6 Capitol violence by his supporters as he faces a Senate trial and legal action when he leaves office in six days.

The House on Wednesday charged him with "incitement to insurrection" in connection with the attack on the Capitol and said in its impeachment that he "will remain a threat to national security, democracy, and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office".  The impeachment was approved by 232 votes -- 10 Republicans joining the entire Democratic contingent of 222 -- with 197 Republicans voting against it and four not voting.  Trump was impeached for the first time in 2019, charged with abuse of power, but acquitted in the Senate trial in 2020.
