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

About 20 angry Republican lawmakers stormed a secure room in the Capitol building basement where House Democrats were holding a secretive impeachment hearing.

The 20 conservative Republicans were given the green light to disrupt the meeting by their boss, the president of the United States, Donald Trump.

The meeting was being held in the U.S. Capitol basement on Wednesday, when 20 Republicans pushed past security guards and stormed into the room with cellphones - which are banned from restricted areas in the Capitol building.

The lawmakers refused to leave, prompting the Democrats to call the police to remove them.

A Pentagon official was giving testimony in the impeachment inquiry against President Trump when the GOP lawmakers barged in.

They staged a sit-in and ordered dozens of pizzas and Chick-fil-A delivered to the room. Disgusted Democrats streamed out of the room as the pizzas and Chick-fil-A sandwiches and cold beverages arrived on carts.

The pizza was delivered by Washington D.C.'s popular We, The Pizza shop, owned by former Top Chef contestant Spike Mendelsohn, whose website crashed on Wednesday and was still offline on Thursday morning.

The GOP lawmakers complained about the lack of transparency in the Democrats' secretive meeting. They accused the Democrats of attempting an illegal coup to remove a sitting president from office.

The Democrats are anxious to impeach Trump ahead of the 2020 presidential elections.

Trump was pleased after viewing news footage of the lawmakers storming into the Democrats' secret meeting. He told reporters that he approved of their planned standoff, according to White Houses sources who spoke with Bloomberg.

But Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, who organized the unlawful disruption, denied speaking with Trump beforehand. "I led the effort and never discussed with POTUS," he tweeted on Wednesday.

President Donald Trump sparked outrage when he compared lynching to the Democrats push to impeach him. Trump made the inflammatory remark in an early morning tweet on Tuesday.

"So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here - a lynching. But we will WIN!"

The reaction was swift as outraged Democrats accused Trump of racializing the impeachment process.

"You think this impeachment is a LYNCHING? What the hell is wrong with you?" tweeted Congressman Bobby L. Rush, a Democrat Representative from Illinois.

Rush added: "Do you know how many people who look like me have been lynched, since the inception of this country, by people who look like you. Delete this tweet."

Lynching is defined as a mob of people who kill someone for an alleged offense without a trial.

According to The Tuskegee Institute, 3,446 Black Americans were lynched between 1882 and 1968.

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham agreed with Trump. Graham told reporters the Democrats are taking the law into their own hands.

"I think lynching is being seen as somebody taking the law in their own hands, and out to get somebody for no good reason," he said on Tuesday. "This is a lynching in every issue."

The Democrats are anxious to impeach Trump before the 2020 elections. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declined to hold a floor vote to officially authorize an impeachment inquiry.

Political pundits say Pelosi doesn't believe she has the votes to impeach Trump.

Twitter users threw an impromptu party after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced an official impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Black Twitter also celebrated under the hashtag #ImpeachmentParty on Tuesday.

In a tweet on Tuesday Trump called the impeachment inquiry a "witch hunt."

"There has been no President in the history of our Country who has been treated so badly as I have. The Democrats are frozen with hatred and fear. They get nothing done. This should never be allowed to happen to another President. Witch Hunt!"

Twitter's hopes are high that the Senate will vote to impeach Trump who is under fire for allegedly asking the Ukrainian president to give him dirt on his political rival Joe Biden.

One Twitter user wrote: "I know this is just a first step, but damnit we've waited SO. LONG. for the start of *something* more tangible, lord knows we deserve an #ImpeachmentParty".

Others wondered why Pelosi took so long to begin the impeachment inquiry into Trump's alleged high crimes and misdemeanors.

Political pundits criticized the Democrats for attempting to impeach Trump with the election just one year away. They say the impeachment process will distract from the Democratic candidates and possibly backfire on the Democrats.

Trump's good friend, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee had the best response to the impeachment party celebrations.

"I'll release later today an unredacted transcript of phone call I had with @PapaJohns ordering a pepperoni pizza. Jerry Nadler has subpoenaed it and AOC demanded that the pepperoni be removed to save the planet. #ImpeachmentParty".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump on Tuesday. Pelosi made the announcement after meeting with House Democrats in a closed door session on Tuesday.

"Today, I'm announcing the House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry," said Pelosi on Tuesday.

Trump is under fire for allegedly pressuring the Ukrainian president to give him dirt on former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

At issue is a July phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which Trump allegedly pressured the Ukrainian government to reopen an investigation into presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son.

On Wednesday, the White House released the unredacted transcript of the phone call between the U.S president and the Ukrainian president.

Among the 5 pages is a section where Trump asks President Zelensky to do the United States a favor and find out what he knows about Hillary Clinton's email server.

"The server, they say Ukraine has it," Trump said.

Trump also asked Zelensky about the now closed investigation into Biden's son, Hunter Biden, who was allegedly paid millions of dollars to sit on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.

Trump was interested in reports that Biden, while still vice president, forced out Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin who was investigating Hunter's business dealings with an energy company called Burisma Holdings.

"There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that," said Trump. "So whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went about bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it... It sounds horrible to me."

The whistleblower who leaked the details of the phone call to the media has indicated through his or her attorney that they are willing to testify before Congress.

If Trump is impeached, he will join 2 other sitting presidents to be impeached in the modern era: Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon.

The Democrats are all aboard the Impeach Trump train amid reports that President Trump threatened Ukrainian officials if they didn’t investigate Joe Biden and his son.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has resisted all efforts to impeach Trump, will hold a closed-door meeting with House Democrats today at 4pm to start formal impeachment proceedings.

At issue is whether President Trump threatened to withhold military aid money from Ukrainian officials if they didn't reopen their investigation into possible corruption by Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

Pelosi previously declined to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump unless the American people demanded it.

Americans remain divided on the decision to impeach Trump, according to multiple polls.

Trump is under fire for asking the Ukrainian president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, who reportedly took $1.5 billion in payouts from China and was paid millions in lucrative business dealings with Ukrainian officials.

Trump was interested in reports that Biden, while still vice president, forced out Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin who was investigating Hunter's business dealings with an energy company called Burisma Holdings.

Trump called Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky in July to congratulate him on winning the election.

During the conservation Trump made an inquiry into reports that Hunter, who was not a public official, was paid millions of dollars as a board member of Ukraine's Burisma Holdings.

Speaking to reporters Monday at the United Nations, President Trump denied asking Ukraine officials to reopen their investigation into Biden and his son.

Questioning what law he'd broken, Trump said "it would probably, possibly have been O.K. if I did".

"But I didn't," Trump insisted. "I didn't put any pressure on them whatsoever."

Trump failed to explain why he placed a freeze on hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid to the Ukraine just one week before the phone call with the Ukraine president.

Trump said he didn't threaten to withhold military aid money from Zelensky if he didn't reopen the investigation into Hunter Biden.

The president also hinted he may turn over a recording of the phone conversation.

Trump criticized the White House whistleblower who revealed the phone conversation, calling him or her "unpatriotic."
