Oct. 31, 2019 — The vote was 232-196 along party lines, but make no mistake: The impeachment process of Donald Trump is happening. On Oct. 31 — yes, that is Halloween scary — Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, endorsed the inquiry. Republicans predictably described the vote and the investigations that preceded it as a “sham process.”

The Halloween day vote probably wouldn’t have been held, were it not for that fateful telephone call Trump made to the Ukranian leader on July 25, one day after special counsel Robert Mueller III — in response to Russian interference into the 2016 election on behalf of Trump — testified before Congress.

All of this is happening as several witnesses testify regarding Trump’s phone call about aid to Ukraine, allegedly in return for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden. As the process moves on and the public weighs in, we discuss the optics surrounding impeachment and where we go from here.
