Nevada Members Vote Along Party Lines On Trump Impeachment

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada's three Democrats in the U.S. House voted Wednesday to impeach President Donald Trump over the deadly insurrection at the Capitol, while the state's lone Republican in the House voted against impeachment.

Republican Rep. Mark Amodei, who represents northern Nevada in the 2nd Congressional District, said in a statement after voting against the article of impeachment that "there is blame and responsibility for the President."

But the congressman called the impeachment a "rush to repudiate" and suggested he doubted that the president's comments played a role in inciting the attack that resulted in five deaths.
