Trump impeached: How US House members from Texas voted

The members of the U.S. House voted Wednesday night along party lines on two articles of impeachment against Pres. Donald Trump.

By the end of the vote, a majority of the Democratic-controlled House voted to impeach the president on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, making Pres. Trump the 3rd U.S. president in history to be impeached.

The vote came after a daylong debate over the matter in which both Democratic and GOP members gave passionate arguments to either vote in favor or against impeachment.

As a reminder, impeachment does not mean a president is removed from office. It instead sends the matter to the U.S. Senate for a trial on the issues the House approved.

Two-thirds of US senators would have to vote to convict the president in order to remove him from office.
