Only two Democrats vote against impeachment inquiry

The House of Representatives voted on an impeachment inquiry today and only two Democrats broke with the party against it. Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey joined all the Republicans in opposing the measure.

Peterson and Van Drew got slammed on Twitter for not sticking with the party.

Peterson released a statement following the vote, saying, “I have been hearing from my constituents on both sides of this matter for months, and the escalation of calls this past week just shows me how divided our country really is right now.”

“Today’s vote is both unnecessary, and widely misrepresented in the media and by Republicans as a vote on impeachment,” he continued. “I will not make a decision on impeachment until all the facts have been presented.”
