Donald Trump is the third politician to be impeached in the history of American Presidents.
He’s being impeached on charges of abuse of power for enlisting a foreign alley to investigate a political rival ahead of the 2020 election and also on the charge of obstruction of Congress.
Actress, Producer and Activist Alyssa Milano said, “I expected this moment but I expected to be more joyful. Maybe jump up & do a happy dance. Maybe. But I’m just sad and heartbroken. What he’s left behind can’t be erased with this vote. The bigotry and xenophobia he’s emboldened. The lies. It will take generations to recover.”
“This is a terrible day in our country’s history. But a great defense of our democracy, “ she added.

Director Rob Reiner, known for films including Stand By Me, and When Harry Met Sally tweeted, “This President is not being Impeached because he’s a liar or immoral or a misogynist or a white nationalist or incompetent or ignorant. He’s being impeached because he committed the High Crimes of Abuse of Power & Obstruction of Congress”.
Christina Perri, an American singer known for her song “Jar of Hearts”, tweeted, “trump being impeached is the best Christmas present ever (gift box emoji)”
