US Rep. Lloyd Smucker votes against impeaching Trump for a second time | PA Power and Policy: Pennsylvania State News

U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker on Wednesday voted against impeaching President Donald Trump for the second time in 13 months, rejecting Democrats' argument that the president's role in inciting the angry mob that attacked the U.S. Capitol last week demanded his removal from office. 

Smucker and Pennsylvania's eight other Republican House members voted against the single article of impeachment. Just 10 Republicans broke from their party and voted with Democrats for impeachment, making Trump the first president in U.S. history to be impeached twice.
