10 GOP votes for impeachment constitutes the highest number from the president’s own party ever, and 231 overall votes (so far) is the highest number in history. In other words, this is the strongest and most bipartisan repudiation of a president by the House.
The importance of 10 GOP House members voting to impeach is this: It shows that it’s not about politics, it’s about courage. The truth is there, for those with guts enough to say it and mean it. To the ten with those guts, your country salutes you.
Thank you to the 10 GOP House Republicans who chose America over Trump and in so doing gave themselves the right to no longer be permanently associated with the stain of Donald Trump's presidency.
Per the great @CarrieNBCNews
, all 10 GOP members who voted TO IMPEACH the president outperformed Trump in November.
Stop making a big deal about the 10 GOP votes to impeach Trump. 95% of House Republicans opposed impeachment, including 139 members who supported Trump’s effort to overturn 2020 election results—and members like Mo Brooks, who incited the January 6 mob. https://t.co/f7JdllgwVG

◾️told supporters to “fight like hell” before the riot
◾️told rioters “we love you” as the riot was happening
◾️has continued to repeat baseless claims of voter fraud https://t.co/JphTdE4LV3

I want to publicly thank these 10 #GOP #MOC who had the #CourageOfConviction to stand up for our #Constitution and the #RuleOfLaw today. This #Impeachment *should* have been 100% #Bipartisan https://t.co/48dACsT5hi

Neither the 10 GOP reps or the democrats get a cookie for doing what they're supposed to. The sedition caucus should not have gotten to vote on impeachment and instead been expelled from congress. They should still probably tried for treason really.
I do think we need to move more the the middle these next four years & come together to heal the country. I am liberal and tend to follow liberal people, but today I was happy to add 10 GOP Congress people to follow on Twitter & be more open to listening to.
Only 10 GOP votes? I wanted more... 🤷🏽♂️
10 GOP who did what their pledged oath demanded to protect our nation. They did their job. Now @senatemajldr
bring the senate back and vote to convict. His minions are still inciting violence.
GOP is saved from extinction as a remnant 10 GOP Representatives led by Rep Liz Cheney signed on to '2nd impeachment of Trump amid threat to their lives and their family's. Statesmanship & courage live on in the GOP. https://t.co/mLEedBxIHm
