Last night, in addition to all 222 Democrats in the House of Representatives, ten Republican members of the United States Congress turned against president Trump. Never before did a president get so many fellow party members against him in an impeachment vote.
The big question now is whether the Senate will include Republican congressmen among the 50 Democrats. To condemn Trump in the Senate, 67 votes are needed. The discontent with Trump’s actions makes it more exciting than ever, though it seems that enough senators Trump remain faithful.
Usually, the parties close ranks to defend their own president. During the previous impeachment procedure, no Republican in the House of Representatives voted for deportation, in the Senate, Mitt Romney wrote history by voting as the first senator ever against a party member.
