President Donald Trump's impeachment inquiry has officially begun after a majority of Democrats voted to pass the House resolution for impeachment on Thursday, Oct. 31.

Every Republican and 2 Democrats voted against the House impeachment resolution.

After the vote on Thursday, Republican lawmakers rushed to the White House. An Instagram user posted this photo that shows lawmakers forming a prayer circle around Trump, whose presidency has been under attack by the Democrats since his landslide victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Trump reacted immediately to the vote, calling the impeachment effort "The Greatest Witch Hunt In American History."

Trump then asked his spiritual advisor, televangelist Paula White to join his White House staff on Thursday.

White, who has known the deeply religious president since 2002, will work in the Office of Public Liaison, MSN reports. In addition to praying over Trump daily, her duties will include overseeing outreach to Trump's prayer warriors around the country.

In advance of a possible forced retirement, Trump announced he and his family are leaving New York City for good. In a series of tweets on Thursday, Trump said he and his family are moving to Palm Beach, Florida permanently.

"I cherish New York, and the people of New York, and always will, but unfortunately, despite the fact that I pay millions of dollars in city, state and local taxes each year, I have been treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state. Few have been treated worse," Trump tweeted on Thursday.

The Democrats are anxious to remove Trump from office before the 2020 election. They will stop at nothing to impeach the president, who has survived all other challenges thrown at him since 2016.

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey gave the Dems a much needed boost by banning all political advertising on the social media platform until after 2020. The reason? Trump has raised more money in campaign donations than all 19 Democratic candidates combined.

Question: who is your choice for President if Trump is impeached?

1. Mike Pence
2. Nancy Pelosi
3. Hillary Clinton
4. Maxine Waters
5. None of the above

A federal appeals court has ordered President Donald Trump to turn over his tax returns to Congress.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled Friday that President Trump's accountants must hand over his tax returns. But Trump could still take the case to the full appeals court or even the Supreme Court.

House Democrats, who are desperate to impeach Trump before the 2020 election, are ecstatic over the appeals order.

"Today's ruling is a fundamental and resounding victory for Congressional oversight, our Constitutional system of checks and balances, and the rule of law," Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), chairman of the oversight committee, said in a statement.

The House Committee on Oversight and Reform subpoenaed Trump's tax records from Trump's accounts, Mazars USA, in April. The subpoena include documents from 2011 to 2018 that the House wants for investigation into the president's potential conflicts of interest.

House Democrats are also attempting to impeach Trump over a complaint filed by a CIA whistleblower who asked to remain anonymous.

Backpage seized

Classifieds marketplace Backpage.com has been seized by the federal government. The seizure occurred hours after the founder's Phoenix home was raided, according to the NY Daily News. Craigslist.com shut down its personals section after Congress approved legislation making it illegal to advertise sex trafficking online.

President Obama

The Obama Administration failed to meet the deadline they set for millions of Americans to sign up for ObamaCare health insurance. The deadline to sign up for insurance through the government's insurance exchanges ran out on midnight Monday. Those who missed the deadline will not be eligible for Obamacare coverage that begins January 1.

But in yet another revision to the Affordable Care Act law -- which usually takes an act of Congress to implement -- the Obama Administration extended the deadline another 24 hours -- through Christmas.

ObamaCare Website Still Broken

President Obama is patting himself on the back after Congress approved a last-minute spending bill and averted a near economic disaster last night. The White House has ordered all furloughed employees to return to work this morning. They will receive back pay for the two weeks that they were out. Contract employees are being told they won't receive a penny of back pay.

While Obama runs his victory lap around the White House, his pet project, the Affordable Healthcare Act, is still an Epic FAIL.

According to Politico.com, the Obamacare enrollment website remains inaccessible despite two weeks of Herculean efforts to repair the faulty website infrastructure.

  • The Senate Rejects House Amendments to Spending Bill

    The Senate voted today to reject the House GOP's amendment to defer ObamaCare for one year. The provision was killed by an all-Democratic vote earlier today. The House GOP's amendments also included a Conscience Clause, or an opt-out for contraceptive coverage.

    The ball is back in the House GOP's court. Unless there is a last minute change of heart by the House GOP leaders, the government will shut down at midnight tonight.

    House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) stands by his decision not to accept a spending bill that does not include provisions to delay or defund ObamaCare for at least one year.

    President Barack Obama said he was not resigned to a shutdown and plans to continue talking to congressional leaders.

    Obama Phones

    The National Security Agency (NSA) disclosed in a classified Capitol Hill briefing that it didn't obtain court orders to listen in on Americans' phone calls.

    Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, made the disclosure on Thursday to members of Congress, CNET reports. The authorization extended to emails and text messages too.

    According to CNET, "the Justice Department has secretly interpreted federal surveillance law to permit thousands of low-ranking analysts to eavesdrop on phone calls."

    In light of this most recent disclosure, it comes as no surprise that the Obama administration has quietly spent $2.2 BILLION dollars handing out free Obama phones to poor people (mostly blacks and Hispanics).

    The reason for this wasteful expenditure of taxpayers' money is simple: it's easier to listen in on phone calls if everyone has a phone.
