U.S. President Joe Biden waves as he departs after the 59th Presidential Inauguration in Washington, DC, U.S. January 20, 2021. Melina Mara/Pool via REUTERSU.S. presidents normally enjoy a “honeymoon” period with the electorate and Congress and try to notch big accomplishments in their first 100 days in office. Democrats control Congress by razor-thin margins, and will need Republican support in the Senate to pass the program. “One of the things I think could really get people together is vaccine distribution which is part of the $1.9 trillion,” Reed said. “So maybe we start there.”Biden is asking Congress for $415 billion to bolster the response to the virus and the roll out of COVID-19 vaccines.

In an emotional debate before the 232-197 vote, 10 Republicans joined the majority Democrats in supporting impeachment. Multiple Republicans defended Trump’s remarks as protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which defends free speech. The swift impeachment, one week after the riot, is very unlikely to lead to Trump’s ouster before Biden takes office on Jan. 20. But even if he has left the White House, the Senate could convict Trump and then vote to ban him from running for office again. FIRST AMENDMENT DEFENSEUnder the Constitution, impeachment in the House triggers a trial in the Senate.

McConnell has said no trial could begin until the Senate was scheduled to be back in regular session on Tuesday. If Trump has left the White House, the Senate could convict him and then vote to ban him from running for office again. FIRST AMENDMENT DEFENSEThe article of impeachment - equivalent to an indictment in a criminal trial - charged Trump with “incitement of insurrection” in his incendiary speech to thousands of supporters on Jan. 6. “High-ranking officials get fired for their speech all the time.”Trump’s team could also argue that holding an impeachment trial after he has left office would violate the Constitution. The House impeached Trump in 2019 on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress stemming from his request that Ukraine investigate Biden and his son Hunter.

But Cheney, from the deeply Republican state of Wyoming, had no such hesitation in announcing her intention on Tuesday to vote for Trump’s impeachment.
