The U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday morning to approve the process going forward to investigate Donald Trump. The resolution will give Schiff power to hold the impeachment investigation in private and then provide summary to the House Judiciary.

The vote gives Adam Schiff the power to block Republicans from releasing facts and transcripts as well as choosing witnesses. The Trump White House will be blocked from the process.

The Trump White House responded quickly to the resolution of the procedure by posting their statement shortly after.

Fox News covered the moment and was one of the first to post the White House responds.

“The President has done nothing wrong, and the Democrats know it. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ unhinged obsession with this illegitimate impeachment proceeding does not hurt President Trump; it hurts the American people.”

“Instead of focusing on pressing issues that impact real families, like reducing gun violence, passing the USMCA, improving healthcare, lowering prescription drug costs, securing our southern border, and modernizing our aging infrastructure, the Democrats are choosing every day to waste time on a sham impeachment—a blatantly partisan attempt to destroy the President.”

“With today’s vote, Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats have done nothing more than enshrine unacceptable violations of due process into House rules. Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff, and the Democrats conducted secret, behind-closed-door meetings, blocked the Administration from participating, and have now voted to authorize a second round of hearings that still fails to provide any due process whatsoever to the Administration. The Democrats want to render a verdict without giving the Administration a chance to mount a defense. That is unfair, unconstitutional, and fundamentally un-American.”

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.

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.”
