Houses Approves Trump Impeachment Procedures

Update: Just before 11:30am ET, the House had enough votes – with 232 for and 196 against, largely along party lines, as Democrats Collin Peterson of Minn. and Jeff Van Drew of N.J. voted no, while Justin Amash voted for and four members not voting – to adopt the resolution that puts Trump on the path toward impeachment.

With the passage of this measure, Democrats will now begin public impeachment hearings to investigate whether Trump should ultimately be removed from office for pressuring Ukraine to investigate a political rival and other possible misdeeds. The closed depositions led by the Intelligence Committee will continue, along with probes in five other panels.

Eventual articles of impeachment would be drafted by the Judiciary Committee for a final floor vote to impeach the president. It would then be up to the Republican-led Senate to decide whether Trump should be removed from office.

Conservatives have pointed out that every Republican opposed the resolution, while two Democrats joined them.

House Democrats on Thursday will debate and then hold a vote on a formal roadmap for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, as several key witnesses have provided testimony this week supporting claims that the Trump administration withheld nearly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine unless they investigated allegations of corruption against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

One day after a decorated army officer told Congressional investigators he witnessed Trump and a senior diplomat pressure Ukraine, three other State Department officials on Wednesday offered more evidence in testimony that supported the allegations against the US leader.

And the inquiry testimony set dates for three more witnesses, including Trump’s estranged former National Security Advisor John Bolton, who would have had first-hand knowledge of the president’s alleged effort to leverage military aid to Ukraine in exchange for President Volodymyr Zelensky investigating his Democratic rival Joe Biden. –AFP via Yahoo

President Trump has blasted the investigation as a “witch hunt,” and has insisted that there was no “quid pro quo” proposed during his communications with Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky.

  1. Can the demon run left wing ever leave the United States if they hate it so much, I’m sure hell has room set aside for all the ones who stand against God and the ones he puts in charge to fix the damage done the entire time left wing was in charge

  2. Closed hearings by Shifty Schiff have no place in a Democratic Society. What does he have to hide other than his obvious bias, and answers from witnesses he doesn’t like or want to hear!

  3. Expect a whole heap of Republicans to march to Washington DC to express our disagreement to an unnecessary impeachment.
    All it is is an excuse for the Democrats to cover up their evil ways of hatred for President Donald Trump!
    My President is not guilty!

  4. Well nothing surprises me anymore! Time to see that every House Democrats and Rino-Republican are out of Congress in the next elect. Or we can March on Washington DC to remove them ourselves! Just don’t go unarmed! All this shit started the first day Trump was sworn in. Time to buy plenty of tomatoes and throw at them!

  5. Looks like a lot of dems might not get voted in when their time for election comes around! All because of hatred. Guess they deserve it.
