US President-elect, Joe Biden, has reacted to the impeachment of President Donald Trump by the House of Representatives.
The House on Wednesday impeached President Trump for a historic second time and seven days before the scheduled swearing-in of Joe Biden.
Biden praised the Nancy Pelosi led house which was able to secure the support of 10 Republican lawmakers.
He said: “Today, the members of the House of Representatives exercised the power granted to them under our Constitution and voted to impeach and hold the president accountable,”
“It was a bipartisan vote cast by members who followed the Constitution and their conscience,”
