House, Rep. Charlie Crist vote to formalize impeachment inquiry

October 31, 2019 - The House of Representatives voted Thursday morning to formalize proceedings in its impeachment inquiry of President Trump. The vote, 232-196 included two no votes from Democrats - Reps. Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey. Rep. Charlie Crist, who represents St. Petersburg and most of Pinellas County voted in favor of the resolution.  “Testimony in recent weeks by senior Trump Administration officials has only heightened concerns that the President sought to leverage military aid to an ally under attack, in exchange for investigating a political opponent,” Rep. Crist said in a statement. “A President putting personal political interest above our country’s national security interests is unacceptable. It rises to the level whereby impeachment must be considered. As the Founding Fathers designed, the House will continue to follow the facts where they lead as a co-equal branch of government. No one is above the law – not even the President. The American people deserve the truth, and we will uphold our Oath of Office to protect and defend the Constitution.”
