Nasty House floor fight sets baseline for Trump impeachment

Nasty House floor fight sets baseline for Trump impeachment | 31 Oct 2019 | For only the fourth time in its history, the House voted Thursday to initiate impeachment against a president of the United States. As a technical matter, the resolution was a dry set of rules for the public phase of an investigation into President Donald Trump that has been under way informally almost since Democrats took control of the House in January. But on a political level, the floor fight over it was nasty, brutish and relatively short -- just over an hour -- ending in a nearly perfect party-line vote. Two Democrats voted "no," and one independent, Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, an independent who left the GOP essentially in protest over his party's allegiance to Trump, voted in favor.
