The House has now approved a measure formalizing the impeachment probe with the majority of support coming from the democrats, receiving at least 228 “yea” votes, clearing the way for public hearings.
The vote has concluded on the impeachment resolution, and it has officially passed the House with a vote of 232-196.
Two Democrats, Colin Peterson of Minnesota and Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey, voted against the resolution, while every House Republican opposed the measure.
One independent lawmaker, former Republican Justin Amash, joined the vast majority of Democrats in supporting the resolution.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham maintained in a statement that the president has done nothing wrong.
“With today’s vote, Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats have done nothing more than enshrine unacceptable violations of due process into House rules,” she said.
