On Wednesday evening local time, the US House of Representatives passed the impeachment motion against Trump's "sedition" as expected. However, as Senate Republicans refuse to invoke emergency authorization to restart the session in advance, the trial of the bill will not take place until at least January 19.

According to the vote, the bill to impeach Trump received 232 votes in favor, 197 votes against and 4 abstentions in the House of Representatives. Among them, all the abstaining votes came from the Republican Party, and a total of 10 Republican senators "against the water" supported the impeachment of the president.

Although the impeachment bill passed a vote in the House of Representatives, Senate Majority Leader McConnell said earlier today that he did not agree to invoke emergency authorization (which requires the consent of all senators) to immediately restart the Senate session, which means that there will be no progress in the legislative process on the impeachment case until January 19.

According to previous analyses by a number of US legal experts, Trump continued to push forward the agenda after he left the White House, with the ultimate goal of preventing him from running for president again in the future.
