The House of Representatives voted on the rules for the Impeachment Inquiry of Dolt45.
The vote was 232-196, with no Republicans voting in favor, and 2 Democrats voting in opposition, with the Republicans.
Let’s be clear – this is the vote that the Republicans have been whining about for weeks, ever since the beginning of the closed door testimony. Now that it has happened, they voted against it, and will have another goalpost for them to move.
You either have a society of laws or you do not.
The President is not above the law. This vote today makes that clear.

Here is the vote – thank you, C-SPAN:
She caught hell, but, she stood strong. Had patience. And, in the end, she was right.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:
Tell it, Nancy Smash 👏 👏

It’s hard to put into words how fortunate we are to have Nancy Pelosi in charge right now. The partisans who disagree with her politics don’t fully realize it, but she’s holding the republic together right now. https://twitter.com/keethers/status/1189925179138433025?s=17
Another person who has held it down is Congressman Adam Schiff- Chairman of the Intelligence Committee:
Now, remember, NO Republican voted with the Democrats. When it came down to it, all of them are cowards. There are no ‘ principled’ ones. Even the ones who won’t be running again, couldn’t come and vote for the Constitution that they swore and oath to:

House GOP: “The process is a sham, there are no open hearings!”
House Dems: “Let’s vote to have open hearings.”
House GOP: “I vote no.” https://twitter.com/MiekeEoyang/status/1189925497901330432?s=17

republicans keep saying you can’t impeach trump because the election is 13 months away. must have missed that section of the constitution. i guess its next to the “no scotus nominations in an election year” clause. https://twitter.com/owillis/status/1189944065166434304?s=17

Important: Each time GOP uses “no due process” argument it is incumbent on press to point out this is false. The resolution provides more due process than afforded any other president in history. Ask what other due process do they want? They will not be able to name anything. https://twitter.com/JRubinBlogger/status/1189932058405195776?s=17

I hope everyone heard what @RepAdamSchiff just said.
A lot of Republican members who have had the right to attend the depositions, HAVE NOT ATTENDED THE DEPOSITIONS.

Someone who way ahead of the curve:
Congresswoman Maxine Waters👏👏
Now, after the House holds its impeachment vote, if they vote for impeachment, it goes over to the Senate, led by Moscow Mitch. Well, we know what the GOP Senate Caucus looks like….they look like bought and paid for stooges of Dolt45.
Everytime you want to open your mouth to complain about what the Democrats are not doing…think on this…..without November 2018, you would not be here. NONE of this would be happening. The Republicans have proven that they will not follow their oaths of office. That they will not follow the Constitution. They will follow Dolt45 and his illegality to the very end. No matter how much it betrays our country, and puts the National Security of our country at risk. They chose Dolt45 over America. Never forget that.
