The lower chamber of congress has voted to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time, with only one week remaining in his presidency, on Wednesday afternoon. Ten GOP members joined the Democratic agenda to impeach Trump for “incitement of insurrection,” including new Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan.

After the House’s move to impeach President Trump, Republicans who sided with Democrats are now ‘fearing for their safety’, Meijer claims.

“Many of us are changing our habits, trying to get access to body armor. It’s terrible we have to go that far,” Meijer said to MSNBC. “But our fear is that someone will try to kill us.”

Meijer said this Wednesday that Democrats’ vote to impeach the president was “not a victory” for Democrats or Republicans, but that accountability for the Capitol Hill protests that happened on January 6 was needed.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said that any impeachment trial in the Senate would happen after the Biden administration had already begun.
