"This resolution only makes it worse".
Stefanik, who is seeking a fourth-term next year, has made impeachment an early-campaign issue, and has attempted to yoke her potential challenger, Tedra Cobb, to the Democratic-led effort in Congress.
Trump is accused of withholding military aid to compel Ukraine to mount an embarrassing corruption probe against his Democratic election rival Joe Biden - using USA foreign policy in an illegal shakedown for his personal political benefit. Trump says he did nothing wrong.
Press secretary Stephanie Grisham called the proceedings "illegitimate".
The vote will mark a significant step in the ongoing inquiry and it could prove to be a hard political calculation for moderate lawmakers in battleground districts, though most House Democrats are already on record in support of the inquiry. It specifically permitted staff counsels to question witnesses for periods of up to 45 minutes per side - both Democrats and Republicans.
In a separate statement to the Enterprise, Cobb said while she supports the inquiry, she is not necessarily pro-impeachment, given the facts at this time. She called the Democrats process "unfair, unconstitual and fundamentally un-American". But when we have a president who says Article Two says I can do whatever I want, that is in defiance of the separation of powers.
Mr Trump and loyal Republicans dismiss the case as a "sham", but congressional investigators have heard a steady flow of corroborating evidence from government officials testifying behind closed doors on Capitol Hill.
Trump Says Baghdadi's Top Replacement Also Killed
The agent had told them about the tunnels under the compound, how many people were with al-Baghdadi and about his planned move. Al-Baghdadi was also killed in a separate USA attack in another border town on Saturday night.
Schiff 'interrupted continually' to 'coach' latest Trump impeachment witness: Nunes

Dennis and Okereke's Club Brugge Suffer Heavy Defeat In UCL

The resolution passed, though, 232 to 196, and largely along party lines, with two Democrats voting against it and the sole independent member voting for it. Today, the majority has put forward a resolution to retroactively condone these actions and continue the process, still under biased rules that ignore the Constitution and precedent. The White House has complained that the proceedings are being held away from the public, which is a routine practice for any grand jury-style investigation.
Van Drew's 2nd District supported Trump by 4 percentage points in 2016, a far closer margin than the 30-point shellacking that Democrat Hillary Clinton received in Peterson's 7th District in Minnesota.
In a floor speech before Thursday's vote, Pelosi said, "This is not any cause for any glee or comfort".
The vote on Thursday sets the rules governing procedures and evidence as the inquiry moves into a more public phase, allowing transcripts from the House Intelligence Committee interviews to be released.
"I think that's one of the reasons why we need a vote in the House, because that will set the rules that the inquiry's actually happening and formalized, and then I think the White House should comply", she said at the October 10 event in Johnstown. She urged lawmakers to vote in favor of the impeachment rules "to protect the Constitution of the United States".
"So, what is at stake is our democracy".
The investigation is focused on Trump's efforts to push Ukraine to investigate his Democratic political opponents by withholding military aid and an Oval Office meeting craved by the country's new president.
"Speaker Pelosi and Chairman Schiff have both insisted that impeachment should be bipartisan".
