Brindisi Votes in Favor of Formalizing Impeachment Inquiry
Rep. Anthony Brindisi voted to support a measure setting up formal rules for a presidential impeachment inquiry.
Brindisi, a Utica Democrat, represents New York's 22nd Congressional District. He voted in favor of the resolution to set rules for the inquiry Thursday morning.
In recent months, Brindisi was reluctant to join the growing number of Democrats who were pushing to impeach President Trump.
In a WNBF News interview early this month, Brindisi said he did not support impeach "at this point." He said he didn't want to "prejudge the outcome."
On Thursday, Brindisi said the House vote "will allow fair and open hearings." He said the process "will finally let Americans judge this for themselves."
Brindisi added the move "will allow both parties to call witnesses." He said the White House "will rightfully be involved."
