Here are the House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump

en GOP House members joined Democrats in voting to impeach President Trump on Wednesday for inciting a riot at the Capitol last week.

It marks the first time in the country's history that a president has been impeached twice in one term.

It's also the most bipartisan impeachment vote in the nation's history.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said he is “in total peace” with his vote even if it costs him his seat.

Rep. Tom Rice (R-S.C.) was the most conservative of the members who supported the effort.

He said a reasonable person would see Trump's remarks to a crowd before the mob attacked the Capitol as having the potential to lead to violence.

“Under the strict definition of the law, I don’t know if the president’s speech last Wednesday morning amounted to incitement of a riot, but any reasonable person could see the potential for violence,” he said.

Rice also took aim at the president for going after Vice President Pence.

"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,” he said in a statement.

The ten Republicans in the House who voted for Trump's impeachment were House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (Wyo.) and Reps. Anthony Gonzalez (Ohio), Jaime Herrera Beutler (Wash.), John Katko (N.Y.), Kinzinger (Ill.) Peter Meijer (Mich.), Dan Newhouse (Wash.), Rice (S.C.), Fred Upton (Mich.) and David Valadao (Calif.).

Multiple Republicans who didn't vote to impeach said they also felt the president’s role in the insurrection — which left five dead, including Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick — warrants repercussions, but took issue with the process and said it would further divide the country.

Consider themselves primaried.

Maybe they'll do the right thing and retire.
