Congressman Al Green brought a resolution before the House today in an attempt to impeach President Trump and it reportedly failed miserably.
Truthfeednews.com reported: From Zero Hedge
We have officially lost count of the number of times that Democrats have now attempted to pass a resolution to impeach President Trump, let alone, alleged sex abuser Congressman Al Green who brought today’s motion. In today’s case, even his own party’s leadership voted against it, calling the move premature.
According to USA Today, Green’s resolution accuses Trump of causing “harm to American society.” It cites his support for banning Muslim immigrants and comments defending participants in a white supremacists’ rally after this year’s riot in Charlottesville, Virginia. Green also argued that Trump’s conduct in the White House (while admittedly not criminal) had amounted to “high misdemeanor” and warranted removal from the Oval Office. “For too long, we have allowed our civility to prevent us from confronting the invidious incivility of President Donald J. Trump,” he said.
However, Green’s vote failed dismally with 58 Democrats and 0 Republicans voting for it, overwhelmingly rejected his motion. As The Hill reports, in a 364-58 vote, lawmakers tabled the impeachment resolution from Green; four Democrats
Every week since President Trump took office, some democrat is demanding Trump's impeachment. They were some democrats who even wanted to impeachment before the inauguration.
The usual suspects for impeachment has been "Uncle" Al Greene and "Auntie" Maxine Waters. Many conservatives have blown off both as "cooky," "crazy," or "senile." Maybe it is time for our "favorite" democrats to retire.
Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) says he intends to force a vote Wednesday to impeach President Donald Trump, a move that Democratic leaders have long sought to fend off despite increasing agitation from a small faction of liberal members.
“I love my country,” Green wrote in a letter to colleagues on Tuesday. “For this reason, I will bring articles of impeachment to a vote in the House of Representatives.”
Under House procedures, lawmakers may offer “privileged” motions on impeachment, which means an individual member can force consideration of the subject. GOP leaders who control the House intend to vote to table it, an aide said. That would force Democrats, for the first time, to go on the record on a measure that would call for Trump's removal from office — and face awkward politics when many likely join Republicans to bury the measure without immediate consideration.
Only a handful of Democrats have called for Trump's impeachment and removal, while Democratic leaders have called such discussions premature. Green nearly forced an impeachment vote in October but pulled back amid pressure from Democratic leadership. Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi has said she's opposed to pursuing impeachment and has complained about Democratic megadonor Tom Steyer’s ad calling for Trump’s impeachment.
