The Missouri and Kansas congressional delegations once again split among party lines Wednesday over whether to impeach President Donald Trump, a second time, for any role he played whipping up a mob to storm the U.S. Capitol.

Kansas Republican Representatives Tracey Mann, Jake LaTurner and Ron Estes voted against impeachment while Democratic Rep. Sharice Davids was the lone member of the Kansas delegation supporting impeachment. In Missouri, Democrats Reps. Emanuel Cleaver and Cori Bush voted to impeach the president. Republicans Reps. Vicky Hartzler, Sam Graves, Billy Long, Blaine Luetkemeyer, Ann Wagner and Jason Smith opposed the effort.

The partisan divide offers another sign that after a violent attack at the national Capitol last week, Democrats and Republicans don’t agree on a path forward for the country.
