The House voted 232-197 on Wednesday to impeach President Trump, one week after a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol.

Ten House Republicans voted to impeach Trump, one week before he is set to leave office.

Below is a list of which House Republicans voted to impeach Trump on Wednesday.

  • Rep. John Katko (N.Y.): “To allow the President of the United States to incite this attack without consequence is a direct threat to the future of our democracy. For that reason, I cannot sit by without taking action. I will vote to impeach this President.”
  • Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.): “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.”
  • Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.): “There is no doubt in my mind that the President of the United States broke his oath of office and incited this insurrection … I will vote in favor of impeachment.”
  • Rep. Fred Upton (Mich.): “Enough is enough. The Congress must hold President Trump to account and send a clear message that our country cannot and will not tolerate any effort by any President to impede the peaceful transfer of power from one President to the next. Thus, I will vote to impeach.”
  • Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (Wash.): “I believe President Trump acted against his oath of office, so I will vote to impeach him.”
  • Rep. Dan Newhouse (Wash.): “A vote against this impeachment is a vote to validate the unacceptable violence we witnessed in our nation’s capital. ... I will vote yes on the articles of impeachment.”
  • Rep. Peter Meijer (Mich.): “With the facts at hand, I believe the article of impeachment to be accurate. The President betrayed his oath of office by seeking to undermine our constitutional process, and he bears responsibility for inciting the violent acts of insurrection last week.”
  • Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (Ohio): “When I consider the full scope of events leading up to January 6th including the President’s lack of response as the United States Capitol was under attack, I am compelled to support impeachment.”
  • Rep. Tom Rice (S.C.): “I have backed this President through thick and thin for four years. I campaigned for him and voted for him twice. But, this utter failure is inexcusable.”
  • Rep. David Valadao (Calif.): “Based on the facts before me, I have to go with my gut and vote my conscience. I voted to impeach President Trump. His inciting rhetoric was un-American, abhorrent, and absolutely an impeachable offense. It’s time to put country over politics.”
