Peterson among 2 Democrats voting no to impeachment inquiry

Despite authorizing public hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry, House Democrats still have private depositions on the books. The Georgia congressman said Thursday's vote on the impeachment resolution is not the end of the road for Republicans.

Pressed by reporters after the vote, Van Drew said he did not think that he and Peterson had muddled Democrats' message on impeachment. "I surely maintain some serious considerations with the vogue the closed-door depositions were lunge, and am skeptical that we can maintain a process that's starting up, transparent and good-making an strive".

Peterson has long represented the sprawling northwest portion of Minnesota, though his victory margin has declined in recent years in the firmly conservative territory that went strongly for Trump in 2016.

Craig is being targeted in an ad campaign along with 28 other so-called "Trump seat Democrats" by a Republican group called the "Congressional Leadership Fund". Two Democrats joined House Republicans in voting against that measure.

"Without bipartisan support I believe this inquiry will further divide the country tearing it apart at the seams and will ultimately fail in the Senate", he said in a statement after the vote on Thursday.

Republicans opposed to the impeachment inquiry have raised concerns about the proceedings being held away from the public's view, among other complaints. Today's vote is both unneccessary, and widely misrepresented in the media and by Republicans as a vote on impeachment.

Schiff said he's also concerned about "the president's threats" to the whistleblower who brought attention to Mr. Trump's call with Ukraine's leader.

"The rules are very much the same as they were during the Nixon impeachment, during the Clinton impeachment", Schiff told "CBS Evening News" anchor Norah O'Donnell.

The president said his administration has been generating the greatest economy in American history, the highest stock market, and the best employment numbers and unemployment numbers in the history of the United States. "We're going to finish our investigation and the public testimony and then as a deliberative body and in consultation with our constituents and our conscience and make a decision on whether the remedy of impeachment is warranted", he said.

The most recent Suffolk University/USA Today Poll taken between October 23-26 asked voters "If the House impeaches President Trump, do you think the Senate should convict him, removing him from office?"

Four lawmakers did not vote Thursday: Republican Reps. Safe. Justin Amash of MI, who is an neutral and left the Republican birthday celebration earlier this yr, voted in prefer.
