In what may have been expected of the House, but is nonetheless disappointing, Democrats have obtained a majority vote to press forward with two articles of impeachment against President Trump.
Trump is now the third president in American history to be impeached.

Here’s how the vote panned out:
- Article 1 — 230-197-1
- Article 2 — 229-198-1
The only Representative to vote “present” was Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI). While her vote may have been sincere, this could be nothing more than a publicity stunt given her intention to exit politics. Still, this was a fairly narrow margin of victory in the Democrat-controlled House.
Now, this notion will be passed onto the Senate to take up and deliberate on. It’s expected that Senate Republicans will vote in favor to dismiss these witch hunt allegations. Still, leftists believe this is a great victory for them.
What they don’t want to accept is the reality that we’ll see Trump stay in office and get reelected in 2020.
