House Approves Continued Impeachment Proceedings Against President Trump

Published by Matt Fishman on

The House of Representatives has approved the continued impeachment proceedings against President Trump. After one hour of debate, the House voted 232-196 to allow House “committees to continue their ongoing investigations” and to determine “whether sufficient grounds exist… to impeach Donald John Trump.” The House of Representatives is now “permitted to question witnesses” in “an open hearing” as well as “subpoena… the attendance and testimony of any person,… and production of books, records, correspondence, memoranda, papers, and documents” “as deemed necessary by the investigation”.

The President has previously stated he will not participate in the impeachment hearings, but would be “ready to engage in that process” “in a manner consistent with well-established bipartisan constitutional protections and a respect for the separation of powers enshrined in our Constitution.” Upon hearing news of the vote, President Trump tweeted it is “The Greatest Witch Hunt In American History!”
