Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi wields the gavel as she presides over the U.S. House of Representatives vote on a resolution that sets up the next steps in the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump on Capitol Hill in Washington, Oct. 31, 2019.
WASHINGTON - The Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday to authorize a public impeachment inquiry targeting President Donald Trump after weeks of testimony behind closed doors about his efforts to push Ukraine to investigate his political opponents.
The vote was along party lines, 232-196 for the impeachment inquiry, with all Republicans against the resolution and two Democratic defectors joining them.
Immediately after the vote, Trump called the impeachment inquiry, "The Greatest Witch Hunt In American History!" in a tweet.
