According to the Vietnam News Agency correspondent, the above resolution is expected to be voted by the US House of Representatives on October 31 to formalize the impeachment investigation and come up with the next specific plan. Democratic lawmakers said the vote was intended to ensure the transparency and publicity of the investigation, including public hearings of key witnesses in a phone conversation between US President Donald Trump and Ukrainian leader.
The move marked a change in the views of the Democratic Party under pressure from Republican lawmakers. Earlier, Republican senators issued a resolution condemning impeachment investigations against President Trump, calling on the House of Representatives to abide by the impeachment process and organize an official vote on the above process.
The impeachment investigation of the House of Representatives revolved around whether President Trump would delay aid to Ukraine to urge the Eastern European nation to conduct an investigation against former Vice President Joe Biden, a serious opponent of the he was in the 2020 presidential election.
