Congressman Graves Votes Against Impeachment

The U.S. House voted to impeach President Trump yesterday, making him the first president in history to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197. Ten Republicans joined Democrats in approving the latest impeachment resolution. The resolution accuses the President of inciting the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol last week. Congressman Sam Graves voted against impeachment. He called the process a waste of tax dollars and said he wants to get back to work on the issues important to North Missouri, like fixing aging infrastructure, helping hospitals battle the pandemic and bolstering efforts to protect communities from flooding. The House reconvenes Friday. The impeachment vote will lead to a trial in the Senate, though the timing and outcome are unclear.
