Two Democrats voted against the measure, while former Republican Rep. Justin Amash, now an Independent, voted with the Democrats. Nancy Pelosi will now decide how Dems proceed:

Immediately following the vote, President Trump had just seven words to describe what he saw unfolding:
The Greatest Witch Hunt In American History!

We’ll have to see where the Dems try to take this from here. Maybe yet another Mueller investigation? Stay tuned!
