HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Like they did in 2019, Pennsylvania’s members of the U.S. House again split down party lines on impeaching President Donald Trump. All nine Democrats voted a second time Wednesday to impeach Trump, while all nine Republicans voted against impeaching Trump. Eight of those Republicans fell in line with Trump in trying in Congress and in court to overturn Trump’s loss in Pennsylvania to President-elect Joe Biden. The ninth, Brian Fitzpatrick, of suburban Philadelphia, accused Trump of “unconscionable” efforts to overturn the election, and fomenting a false information campaign and inflammatory rhetoric that led to the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week. However, Fitzpatrick instead pushed for passage of a bicameral resolution to condemn Trump.
