The resolution passed the House 420-0. Four Republican lawmakers, including Arizona congressman Paul Gosar, voted “present” on the measure – a way to avoid a “yes” or “no” vote. Seven lawmakers, including Arizona Republican Rep. David Schweikert, didn’t cast votes.

Gosar was joined in voting “present” by Reps. Justin Amash of Michigan, Matt Gaetz of Florida and Thomas Massie of Kentucky.

Gosar told the Mirror afterward that he couldn’t support the resolution because it could result in sensitive or classified information being made public in a manner that skirts existing rules for evaluating such material.
