Democrats have passed a House resolution that will formalize the impeachment investigation against President Trump.
It wasn’t easy for them, as all the Republican representatives and two House Democrats voted against the resolution.
The vote featured two Democrats, most likely Reps. Van Drew (D-NJ) and Collin Peterson (D-MN), who voted against the resolution. No Republicans voted for the resolution, in a show of Republican support for the president and against the impeachment inquiry.
Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) voted for the impeachment process resolution.
House Republican leadership stood solidly behind Trump:
House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) chastised the House Democrats for focusing on investigating President Trump and his administration while doing little to pass substantial legislation.
McCarthy said that Congress has delivered “more subpoenas” than they have passed “laws.”
The California conservative said Democrats have pursued an agenda “devoid of solutions.”
Rep. McCarthy also said Democrats have moved towards impeaching Trump because “they’re scared they can’t beat him on the ballot box.”
