It’s official: the House of Representatives has voted to impeach President Trump — which is no surprise, considering how partisan this whole debacle has been. This fulfills the dream of many Democrats since the day Trump was elected, but now what? We have the possibility of the House monkeying around and withholding the articles of impeachment rather than passing them on to the Senate so the president could be acquitted.

If the articles do go to the Senate, a lot of people have been suggesting that the Senate bypass witnesses altogether and just vote the thing down rather than give it any legitimacy by furthering the process. And as Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reminded them, it was the job of the House to come up with enough compelling evidence to convince the Senate, and if they failed at that, it’s on them — it’s not the Senate’s job to investigate.

Only two Democrats voted nay on Article 1, while only one Republican voted Yea.
