The House has approved rules for the Trump impeachment probe into President Donald Trump. The vote showed a house divided.

Thursday’s near party-line 232-196 roll call was the House of Representatives first vote on the process that will take months.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi presided over the chamber and says the vote to approve the ground rules for the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump and is a necessary duty for lawmakers.

In a floor speech before Thursday’s vote, Pelosi said, “This is not any cause for any glee or comfort.”

Pelosi made her statement standing next to a large U.S. flag in the well of the House of Representatives.

“The times have found each and every one of us in this room,” Pelosi said. She then told lawmakers to vote in favor of the impeachment rules “to protect the Constitution of the United States. What is at stake in all of this is nothing less than our democracy.”

The House Democrats and Republicans are rounding up the votes for the rules considering impeachment of President Trump.
