A sharply divided House of Representatives has approved the rules for its impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump. How did local U.S. Representatives vote?

“This is outside the norm of anything that we have seen regarding impeachment in the past.”

U.S. Representative Bill Huizenga recalls the Nixon and Clinton impeachments drew bipartisan support.

Thursday's near party-line vote broke with a 232-196 roll call. It was the chamber's first formal vote on a process that's likely to take months, possibly stretching into the early weeks of the 2020 election year.
