response as well. Terry, thanks for that. Let's bring in Mary Bruce. Reporter: Yeah, George, as you can imagine Democrats are furious with the president's continued attacks here. Ilhan OMAR shot back herself on Twitter saying, quote, I am where I belong. At the people's house and you're just gonna have to deal. The president's 2020 rivals are also firing back. Senator kamala Harris called the president's attacks vile, cowardly and says it's racist and defies the office. President and Joe Biden says these members are examples of exactly what makes America great. Polls show a majority of Americans reject this kind of attack on the congresswoman. You saw that impeachment resolution inspired by the president's attacks. Reporter: This was a revealing vote. You had 137 Democrats here vote to kill a move to impeach the president over these racist tweets and his recent attacks while 95 Democrats voted to consider impeachment. It just goes to show how divided Democrats are on this issue. Now, speaker Pelosi, this was a vote she had worked to prevent. She has argued that this move was premature given all the ongoing investigations and well aware of the political risk here that moving to impeach could backfire on Democrats, but, George, while this fight for now is postponed, the debate over impeachment is far from over, in fact, the vote count up here just goes to show that democratic support for impeachment is only growing. Of course, Robert Mueller testifying next week. On another front that 9/11 victims compensation fund held up in the senate. Two conservative senators Rand Paul and Mike Lee are holding up the fund. They say they're not trying to block it but add conditions and offset all these costs. Mike Lee says he wants to add additional oversight but this move has sparked a lot of frustration and outrage here on the hill and from those first responders who depend on this fund. Comedian Jon Stewart who advocated this is blasting the senators. But bottom line, Mitch Mcconnell has told us he wants it done by the end of the month. It will just take a little more political muscle. Thanks very much. Now to that breaking news overseas.
