WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Fred Upton strayed from the party line Tuesday night when he announced he will vote in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump, following last week’s insurrection at the nation’s Capitol.

Upton, R-St. Joseph, said in a statement late Tuesday that his decision became clear after the president spoke earlier in the day and showed no remorse for his actions on Jan. 6 that seemed to spark the mob violence.
