The House of Representatives on Thursday passed a resolution formalizing the impeachment inquiry versus POTUS Donald Trump.
The last ballot was 232-196, and also it was nearly divided totally along party lines.
As reported by Fox News, not a solitary Republican elected the resolution.
The libertarian-leaning Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, a Republican-turned-independent, cast his vote in support of the resolution.
2 Democrats elected no– Reps. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey as well as Collin Peterson of Minnesota.
The ballot wasn’t to impeach Trump, instead, it officially ordered the current impeachment inquiry that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi already started last month.
“The working theory among Democrats is there will be another week or two of closed depositions — and that public hearings before the House Intelligence Committee could begin as soon as the second week in November,” CNN reported.
Head Of State Donald Trump was fast to take action.
“The Greatest Witch Hunt In American History!” he tweeted.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham produced a lengthier declaration, as reported by Fox.
“The President has done nothing wrong, and the Democrats know it,” Grisham stated.
“Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ unhinged obsession with this illegitimate impeachment proceeding does not hurt President Trump; it hurts the American people,” she continued.
“Instead of focusing on pressing issues that impact real families, like reducing gun violence, passing the USMCA, improving healthcare, lowering prescription drug costs, securing our southern border, and modernizing our aging infrastructure, the Democrats are choosing every day to waste time on a sham impeachment — a blatantly partisan attempt to destroy the President.”
Grisham wasn’t done yet…
“With today’s vote, Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats have done nothing more than enshrine unacceptable violations of due process into House rules,” she declared.
“Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff and the Democrats conducted secret, behind-closed-door meetings, blocked the Administration from participating, and have now voted to authorize a second round of hearings that still fails to provide any due process whatsoever to the Administration. The Democrats want to render a verdict without giving the Administration a chance to mount a defense. That is unfair, unconstitutional, and fundamentally un-American.”
