On Wednesday afternoon, to the surprise of absolutely no one, the Democratic-controlled House voted to impeach President Donald Trump for his role in inciting a riot that led to the overrunning of the US Capitol just seven days ago.

* The 10: In the end, 10 Republicans voted to impeach Trump.

* Trump's gambit to limit defections: Even as the House was debating the impeachment question -- and in the immediate wake of several Republican House members announcing their plans to vote for impeachment -- Trump released a statement, via Fox News, that urged "NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind. " It was a statement that elected Republicans had urged Trump to make for days, and it was (finally) done to stop the bleeding for the President and his party on the impeachment vote.

* A whole lotta Liz Cheney: The Wyoming Republican congresswoman didn't speak on the floor of the House during the impeachment debate, but her statement Tuesday night announcing that she would support the impeachment of Trump was cited again and again by Democratic speakers as they sought to appeal to the consciences of their Republican colleagues.
