House to Vote on Articles of Impeachment

"It is not about Republicans, it is about the fate of our Republic", Green wrote to colleagues Tuesday.

"Tomorrow we will bring Articles of Impeachment to the floor of the Congress of the United States of America for a vote", Green said Tuesday morning on the House floor, announcing that "three prominent Democrats" have asked to meet with him to discuss impeachment.

The measure was voted down 364-58 as every Republican and a majority of Democrats opted to table the measure.

The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted Wednesday to stop an effort by lawmaker Al Green to impeach President Donald Trump.

For these reasons, I've stated for months that I believe President Trump should be, and eventually will be, impeached. "Right now, Congressional committees continue to be deeply engaged in investigations into the President's actions both before and after his inauguration".

Forcing a vote on impeachment before investigators complete their work, Democratic leaders say, may undermine the potential for a bipartisan effort over impeachment if inquiries uncovered compelling evidence against Trump. Politically, the vote puts rank-and-file Democrats in a tough position - between a desire to allow the investigations to run their course, the possible discomfort of moderate voters, and the demands of the anti-Trump left wing.

"He has harmed the society of the United States; brought shame and dishonor to the office of president of the United States; sowing discord among the people of the United States by associating the majesty and dignity of the presidency with causes rooted in white supremacy, bigotry, racism, anti-Semitism, white nationalism or neo-Nazism", Green said.

As examples, Green's articles of impeachment cite Trump's equivocating response to the violence from a white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Va., in August, as well as his attacks on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality. "I will them that it's about democracy". The resolution accuses Trump of "high misdemeanor", worthy of removal from office. "But sometimes, it's more important to follow your heart than do the practical or political calculation", he said.
