The House of Representatives passed Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment resolution in a 232-196 party line vote. Two Democrats voted against against the resolutions and no Republicans voted in favor.
Democratic Reps. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey and Colin Peterson of Minnesota voted against the resolution, while Independent Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan voted to begin the impeachment inquiry.
Some Arizona representatives were quick to take to social media to announce their votes, while others remain silent.

The House just passed a resolution establishing next steps for the impeachment inquiry. This process will ensure transparent and public hearings for the American people to witness. We will continue to proceed with the seriousness that this moment in history demands.

This resolution for a sham impeachment process is a farce:
– Transcripts aren’t required to be made public
– Exculpatory evidence does not have to be turned over
Democrats are misleading the public once again. This does not open up the process, nor does it provide transparency. pic.twitter.com/QnvHeWDaEt

Public hearings will expose Trump’s cover-ups, corruption, and shake-downs to the American people.

Looks like we have a Haunted House of Representatives today in Congress.

As allegations and evidence regarding President Trump’s illegal conduct continue to pile up, the House is fulfilling our Constitutional duty by moving forward with the impeachment probe.

The only bipartisan thing about this impeachment sham is the opposition to it.
