Outgoing President Donald Trump has been impeached for a historic second time over the deadly riots at the US Capitol.

The House of Representatives has voted to charge him over his role in last week's storming of Congress, in which five people died.

It decided he violated his oath to protect and defend US democracy by inciting a mob - something the President denies.

A total of 10 Republicans voted against their party and Donald Trump, with the final result being 232 votes to impeach, and 197 against.

He is the first US president to be impeached twice, after he was previously charged over his calls with the Ukrainian President.

There will now be a trial in the US Senate, and if he loses he could be banned from running for office ever again.
