WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives killed a Republican resolution on Friday disapproving of the formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced this week.
The vote was 222-184, largely along party lines, in favor of a motion to table the resolution introduced by Representative Kevin McCarthy, the House Republican leader.
The introduction of the resolution, and the vote, underscore the deep partisan divide in the House over the effort to investigate the Republican president.
