Forsyth County’s Reps. vote along party lines for impeachment
Carolyn Bourdeaux
U.S. Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux, left, a Democrat who represents Georgia’s 7th Congressional District, voted in favor of impeachment and gave her first remarks on the House floor. U.S. Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-Athens, right, who recently replaced Doug Collins, R-Gainesville, in representing the 9th District, voted against impeachment.
With the Capitol secured by armed National Guard troops inside and out, the House voted 232-197 to impeach Trump. The proceedings moved at lightning speed, with lawmakers voting just one week after violent pro-Trump loyalists stormed the U.S. Capitol, egged on by the president's calls for them to "fight like hell" against the election results.
