In bad news for President Donald Trump, but it is expected, the House of Representatives has 223 members of the House of Representatives to form a slim majority so far, which the House needs to move forward with President Trump's impeachment measures in preparation for his removal.
According to an update of the New York Times, 223 members of the Democratic Party, which dominates the council, approved the accountability as of Friday.
The number rose rapidly after the White House unveiled a record of private talks between President Trump and the Ukrainian president, which showed Trump's request for an investigation into alleged corruption by former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard abruptly agreed Friday to hold President Trump accountable for his impeachment and abandoned her long-standing opposition to the measure, which culminated in recent days.
"I am not a lawyer, but I think most people who have read the call log will not find this a very compelling reason to dismiss a president who won the election in 2016," she said in her last remarks before changing her position.
“Instead, I think most people will see it as another step by Democrats to get rid of Donald Trump, which threatens to deepen the deep divisions in this country.”
Ms. Gabbard was the only opposition to the isolation decisions, even after the White House disclosed the record of the phone call last July, in which President Trump urged Ukraine's president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.
