House passes impeachment process resolution | ABC News


INDEED IT THEN GOES OVER TO THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE. YOU SEE THE VOTES RIGHT THERE. LARGELY A PARTY LINE VOTE. 477 REPUBLICANS AGAINST. ONLY TWO DEMOCRATS HAVE CROSSED PARTY LINES SO FAR. THAT WAS — ONE INDEPENDENT WHO WAS A REPUBLICAN IN MICHIGAN VOTING WITH THE DEMOCRATS TO AUTHORIZE THIS RESOLUTION. THEY’RE COMING UP ON THE NUMBERS NEEDED RIGHT NOW TO PASS THIS RESOLUTION. A MAJORITY OF THE HOUSE WILL BE 215 OR 216 VOTES TODAY DEPENDING ON THE FINAL COUNTS OF MEMBERS IN THE CHAMBER. I WANT TO GO TO MARY BRUCE, OUR SENIOR CONGRESSIONAL CORRESPONDENT ON THE HILL AS WE’RE WAITING FOR THIS FINAL VOTE TO PASS AS WE SEE HOUSE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI ON THE CHAIR. MARY, THIS WAS NOT IN DOUBT — THIS WAS A VOTE NANCY PELOSI RESISTED FOR SOMETIME BEFORE TODAY, BUT NOW SHE’S UNIFIED HER CAUCUS AROUND THE MOVE TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP. >>Reporter: IT IS A REMARKABLE TURNAROUND FOR DEMOCRATS. THEY RESISTED THIS MOVE, BUT NOW THE SPEAKER IS CONFIDENT THEY HAVE THE VOTES. WE SEE THEY ARE INCHING CLOSER TO THAT RIGHT NOW. THIS IS THE MOST TANGIBLE STEP YET TOWARDS IMPEACHMENT, AND IT WILL MARK A NEW PHASE IN THIS INVESTIGATION. DEMOCRATS NOW RALLYING BEHIND THIS MOVE, AND THEY WOULDN’T BE DOING THIS, GEORGE, IF THEY DIDN’T FEEL THAT THE PUBLIC IS INCREASING THEIR SUPPORT FOR THIS INQUIRY AS WELL. ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE AISLE, THERE, GEORGE, YOU HAVE IT. 217 VOTES. THAT MEANS THE DEMOCRATS HAVE THE SUPPORT TO GO AHEAD AND ADVANCE THIS MEASURE. THIS OUTLINES THE STEP IN THIS, AND IT WILL SET UP PUBLIC HEARINGS IN WHAT WE BELIEVE WILL BE THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.>>OKAY, MARY BRUCE. JON KARL IS AT THE WHITE HOUSE AS WELL. THIS RESOLUTION, JON, IN SOME WAYS, CALLS THE REPUBLICANS’ BLUFF. THEY HAVE BEEN MAKING COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE PROCESSING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. OF COURSE, THE DEPOSITIONS HAVE BEEN TAKEN BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND IT AUTHORIZES RULES THAT GIVE THE MINORITY SOME RIGHTS. NOT THE KIND OF RIGHTS REPUBLICANS HAD, BUT PRESIDENT TRUMP STILL RAILING AGAINST THE INVESTIGATION. NOT COOPERATING AT ALL.>>Reporter: AND REPUBLICANS WILL POINT OUT, GEORGE, THAT THIS IS AN ENTIRELY PARTISAN VOTE WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE TWO DEMOCRATS THAT VOTED AGAINST IT. NOT A SINGLE REPUBLICAN VOTING IN FAVOR OF THIS. THE OBJECTIONS THOUGH ARE PROCEDURAL. THEY ARE NOT SUBSTANTIVE AS YOU ALLUDED TO. THE REPUBLICANS WANT THINGS LIKE SUBPOENA POWER, TO BE ABLE TO SUBPOENA THEIR OWN WITNESSES IN THIS PROCESS. RIGHT NOW THEY CAN ONLY DO THIS IF THEY HAVE THE APPROVAL OF THE DEMOCRATS. SO THERE ARE REPUBLICAN OBJECTIONS AND I WOULD EXPECT, GEORGE, THAT REPUBLICAN MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WILL BE COMING HERE TO THE WHITE HOUSE ONCE THIS VOTE IS WRAPPED UP TO SHOW THEIR SUPPORT FOR THE PRESIDENT. >>THAT JULY 25th PHONE CALL WITH THE UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT WHERE THE PRESIDENT PRESSURED ACCORDING TO DEMOCRATS, THE UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT TO INVESTIGATE — DO POLITICAL INVESTIGATIONS FOR THE PRESIDENT, AND WAS WITHHOLDING AIDE IN A WHITE HOUSE MEETING. THAT WAS THE SUBSTANCE OF SOME OF THE TESTIMONY SO FAR IN THESE DEPOSITIONS FROM GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND FORMER GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS TO THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE. PUBLIC HEARINGS ARE EXPECTED TO BE ANNOUNCED LATER TODAY BY THE CHAIRMAN OF THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE. AGAIN, THE HOUSE HAS NOW PASSED THIS RESOLUTION TO AUTHORIZE PUBLIC HEARINGS BY THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE, AND AN IMPEACHMENT HEARING IN THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE FOR PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP. I’M GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS IN NEW YORK. WE’LL HAVE A FULL WRAP-UP TONIGHT. OUR COVERAGE CONTINUES ON ABC

  • This reminds me of going to a track meet where only the opposing team is allowed to run around the track. When they win they're jumping around yelling "we did it, we beat them!" Pathetic.

  • Pollyanna Davis says:

    I stand for Mr. Trump .He's done things for our country that didn't seem to matter to the previous presidents. Mr. Trump keep on keeping on sir. Thank you and God bless you and your family.

  • In 2015 Republicans never voted to deny Due Process Rights and Dems are acting like monarchs so they can do this to allow Schiff to run amock in secret and create a 24/7 100% pro Democrat, 100% Orange Man Bad narrative.

  • Out of respect to my boss I will stay out of politics for the most part until I am eligible for a higher position. Do I think what president Trump did was right absolutely not but should he be impeached no. President Trump may not get along with everyone but him and I have had a respectful friendship. Hunter Biden has done his own dirt from what I have been told but I will stay out of it. Impeaching the president will cause a lot of choas on both parties and the best thing to do is learn from it and move on. Yes I am a republican but for now I won't debate much on politics or religion but you will see me every day making a difference in the lives of others. Both parties need to get along because divided we fall united we thrive and stand tall ❤️ USA ❤️

  • 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾Vote: Dems- 232 to Rep- 196. To formally #ImpeachTrump; the worst president to ever serve in US history. My life has drastically changed for the worse since Trump became president. My life was good under Obama, Bush & Clinton. Then this Evil Trump comes along and his policies have changed everything in our country. His criminal behaviors as president is currently destroying our democracy & country.

  • ShareThisFastDOTcom says:

    Only a fool would think any of this is serious, it's total propaganda. Who, why, what, everything you're missing to the daily s**t show leaked in my name.

  • Well…..
    We are now seen as untrustworthy to our allies.
    Businesses are moving oversees… so much for their tax breaks
    Uses social media to vent his spleen in language I heard in grade school.
    Talks about fake and phoney…..still hasn't released his tax returns.
    Has a ton of lawyers on his payroll but has nothing to hide.
    Says his sons run the business but constantly says "we"
    Public Officials are staying at Trump properties while conducting official government business and he's okay with this.

    I just don't know…….is this the behavior of a President?

  • REAL BLACKS KNOW THE TRUTH says:

    I'm going to break this down to you very easily: …. the investigation is worthless! LOL LOL Biden announce his campaign on April 25th! Donald Trump was already referring to the Ukraine investigation prior to the phone call escalation point he already gave the state department the files on the corruption in Ukraine. Is the phone call has to do with investigating Biden regarding political manipulation then why is it that the doj and the state department were already looking into Biden before he ran for his campaign? Trump got them by the balls! #blacks for Trump Maga 20/20 KAG q17

  • Biden: "You investigate my son and you don't get U.S. taxpayers millions of dollars. Fire the prosecutor who is investigating corruption of my son and the company he works for". Trump to Ukraine: Can you check this corruption out" And the democrats want to impeach with that? Biden's son receives $50,000.00 A MONTH for being on the board of a corrupt energy company WITH NO ENERGY EXPERIENCE What a circus. The democrats , grown adults acting like little children.

  • Carlos Barahona says:

    Well this is it. All of Trumps drama, finally unfolds. Justice for our Constitution. All Trump did was be verbally abusive, lies and condescending. This is respect for our country. Our laws as a nation things we all have sworn to protect.

  • Carlos Barahona says:

    The President is supposed to uphold the law not break it or be above it. Trump took it too far. Using Ukraine for Quid pro quo. An American seeking help to destroy another American. Get the Ukrainian to do his dirty job. With tax payers money. I think it went to Trumps head to use the White House for his own political re-election. Time and time again Democrats tried to work with him. Republicans had plenty of opportunities.

  • Carlos Barahona says:

    It's not a witch hunt. It's not a lynching! It's respect for the Constitution! Time and time again he just kept walking and stepping all over it. What part of respect to the Constitution and our nation do Republicans don't get! Tom Cole needs to look at the baseball game. Trump got booed! Enough! Proceed! Stubborn Republican. Not even George Bush or Ronald Reagan went this far. Worst Republican ever! A total nut case!

  • Vanessa Hernandez says:

    Trump will never ever ever ever be impeached and will be re-elected if you disagree put your money where your mouth is, bet against me

  • bible is from fire black rasist terrorriste satanic and jews people and christianity son of muslim>>> black rejected messah issa son of mery rejected him

  • In my eyes the Democrats have taken this task very seriously and it's not Witch Hunt or Lynching, as Trump and his Cronies insist. When the words come out of Trump's mouth, it's 99% of the time a Lie! How can the Republicans even consider backing this Liar? Oh, I know, they are afraid of losing their Seats!

  • What your going to pass something you already broke laws on and the Constitution and right to a fair trial ! Lmmfao ! Go back and look my friend ,they been trying to impeach him 5 minutes after he became president ! Lol ! What kind of America do you call this? When it falls ,ever other country will fall too ,shoes going to protect them ! Lol ! And maybe this is what liberals and these ignorant kids deserve ! To have nothing to be controlled to be a slave ,. It's funny there working backwards in history thinking it's forward , remember history repeats itself ! Lol !

  • All I ask is you watch the Republicans press conference that the networks won't show you, then judge fair. To many people only see one side that the networks show and not getting all the facts.
    I look at coverage from every outlet I can find not just one. Not a single one, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX or CNN tells the whole story only what they want you to hear.

  • Carlos Barahona says:

    Impeachment I guess is a nothing burger to Republicans! Trump crossed the line and that's why we are here. The goofy clown crossed the line. Republicans don't care for the Constitution! Keep it real Republicans! Thank you Nancy Pelosi for keeping it real 🙂 XOXO

  • The DECEIT is overwhelming! The career politicians and bureaucrats are trying to hide their crimes, their theft, the theft of our children's future and all the good individual freedom has brought.

  • Golly, them Repubs sure seem all kinda Butthurt. Cannot imagine why. Now most everything can be done in public where they can get all the attention they really deserve.

  • Nero fiddled while Rome burned. The Dems fiddle with their never-ending coup efforts while California burns and the budget explodes with another $1.5 trillion in deficit spending. Talk about screwed up priorities!

  • Michael Skoviak says:

    Remember what this is all about to get Trump out of office because it jeopardize there objective which is to push America to a far left socialist government. Which no American wants. Because most democrats broke there oath to uphold the constitution. They don't care about the constitution or anyone's rights. By the way it's DUE PROCESS Proably one of the more important admendments. Before that they either lined you up in a fire line or just hang you then ask questions. It's all a ruse and that's what it is. It's been tainted by time it gets to the Senate it will be thrown out and say if it goes to the Supreme Court it definitely will be thrown out. These are very bad times in America politics.

  • Republicans say the darndest things! Impeach the whole lot of them and start fresh with people who will uphold the constitution and the rule of law over all else!

  • CALIFORNIA"S BURNING….your elected Robots are doing nothing to help you. VOTE REPUBLICAN …CALIFORNIA PATRIOTS. We are praying for OUR FELLOW Ametican"s safety..

  • PATHETIC ! "All Americans" are "innocent until proven guilty!" Get it? – Dems
    & Fake Media are ‘the problem’ by calling the President “guilty” first !
    and then Lying Schiff calling pro-Dem witnesses into secret closed door
    sessions. Hell, Tulsi Gabbard just exposed how corrupt Hillary&
    DNC is, but CNN, ABC, CBS & MSNBC won't say a thing because they are only
    spewing biased fake news to help their Deep State pals!
