President Of The United States Of America

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said shortly before the vote; “Today, the House takes the next step forward as we establish the procedures for open hearings conducted by the House Intelligence Committee so that the public can see the facts for themselves,” 

Only two Democrats; representing districts that Trump won handily in 2016 voted against the resolution, along with all Republicans, for a total count of 232 in favour and 196 against. 

The resolution also provides for opportunities for Trump’s counsel to cross-examine witnesses.

The US President is accused of trying to pressure Ukraine into investigating unsubstantiated corruption claims against his political rival, Joe Biden, and his son who worked with Ukrainian gas company Burisma.

Trump denies wrongdoing.
