“Today’s impeachment is not about dividing this country. It’s about uniting all patriotic Americans against the unconstitutional actions of an out-of-control president—a president who incited insurrection against our great nation,” Murphy said in a statement.

Murphy noted 10 republicans voted to impeach Trump in the House vote.

Waltz voted to not impeach President Trump.

“With one week until the inauguration, what our country needs most is unity, not more fuel thrown on the fire,” Waltz said on Twitter.

The next step is the Senate will hold a trial on the charge of incitement of insurrection.

This charge comes after supporters of Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol last week.

The attack on the Capitol happened during a joint session to certify the results of the Electoral College votes from the 2020 Presidential Election to officially name Joe Biden as the next President of the United States.

The charge states President Trump endangered the security of the United States and the institutions of Government.

It will take a 2/3 majority vote in the Senate to convict President Trump.

The trial will not take place before Biden’s Inauguration, according to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
