Democratic members of the House of Representatives approved new legislation Thursday that formalizes their impeachment inquiry against President Trump; passing the resolution along party lines.
The final vote was 232-196. Two Democrats voted against the investigation.
“A yes vote on this resolution today gives a stamp of approval to a process that has been damaged beyond all repair and a blatant and obvious coup to unseat a sitting president of the United States,” Rep. Ross Spano, R-Fla., said.
“I do not take any pleasure in the need for this resolution,” Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., said. “We are here because the facts compel us to be here.”
“The Greatest Witch Hunt In American History!” posted Trump shortly after the vote.

“With today’s vote, Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats have done nothing more than enshrine unacceptable violations of due process into House rules,” said White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham.
