Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., walks to the House chamber on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2021.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Democrat from Minneapolis, called President Donald Trump a "tyrant" as she voted to impeach him Wednesday for the second time.

"For years we have been asked to turn a blind eye to the criminality, corruption and blatant disregard for the rule of law from this tyrant in the White House," Omar said in a House floor speech during the impeachment debate.

For Rep. Jim Hagedorn, a Republican who represents southern Minnesota, impeaching Trump amounts to "further dividing an already splintered nation" - even though Hagedorn has never rejected the president's false claims of a rigged election.
