The House voted 232-196 Thursday to approve Democrats' terms for an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

The vote on the resolution was largely along party lines, though Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.) did side with Democrats, and two Democrats did disapprove the plan. The vote came after reports spelled out the increased rights Trump would be afforded under the resolution, and as Republicans criticize House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for not taking the vote sooner.
