The resolution passed 232 to 197. With this, Trump has made history as the only American president impeached twice.
10 Republican party members voted to impeach him, however, it is unknown when the House will send the article of impeachment over to the Senate.
After the Senate receives the article, a trial will take place and if enough senators vote to convict him, Trump will be removed from office.
The senators can also vote to ban him from taking public office again. Meanwhile, the trial might not take place during Trump's administration as he is set to leave office in some days' time. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is expected to determine when the trial will take place.
