Rep. Carol Miller, R-W.Va., speaks as the House of Representatives debates the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2019.

This is a developing story and may be updated.

Debate continues on the floor of the U.S. House on whether to impeach President Donald Trump — and West Virginia’s delegation is expected to oppose the articles and support the president. 

Rep. Carol Miller, a Republican who represents West Virginia’s 3rd Congressional District, spoke on the floor early in Wednesday’s debate.

House Democrats are accusing the president of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Miller argued those charges don’t hold up. 

“There are two charges claimed by House Democrats and there is zero cause for either. While President Trump has led our country has thrived, and Washington liberals have failed,” Miller said.

Miller, who sits on the House Oversight Committee, protested the earliest of proceedings into the impeachment inquiry into the president.

She is expected to vote against the articles of impeachment, as is David McKinley and Alex Mooney — the two other Republican members of the House from West Virginia. 

Should the Democratic-led House adopt articles of impeachment, the president would stand trial in the Senate.
