House Formalizes Inquiry To Impeach Trump: Here’s What People are Saying

President Donald Trump Nelson Mandela

This morning, the House of Representatives—divided and all—voted and approved a formalized process to impeach President Donald Trump. Although Republicans opposed the vote, the House vote passed 232-196, making way for public hearings.

During the vote, two Democrats, Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey, voted against the resolution, while every House Republican opposed the measure. Former Republican Justin Amash also voted in favor of supporting the process as well.

As to be expected, this decision is being met with opposition. In 2016, people living in rural America played an instrumental role in confidently electing the 45th president of the United States. Interestingly enough, as of recently, those very people are starting to question Trump’s ability to lead after a series of questionable deeds—even though they are being persuaded to dominate the conversation around his impeachment online according to a new survey conducted by One Country Project.

As Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), leads the charge for Trump’s impeachment; America—and the rest of the world—is watching closely.

Other politicians and political pundits are weighing in. Here is what they are saying:
