And given that the vote came exactly one week before Christmas, Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” team put a new spin on an old carol to mark the occasion:
Trump is now the third president in U.S. history to be impeached.
However, he is almost certain to be acquitted in the Republican-controlled Senate.
“There is no chance the president is going to be removed from office,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said last week. “My hope is there won’t be a single Republican who votes for either of these articles of impeachment.”
