House rejects Democrat's resolution to impeach Trump

Source: The Hill



BY CRISTINA MARCOS - 12/06/17 02:02 PM EST

The House on Wednesday overwhelmingly rejected an effort by Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) to impeach President Trump.

In a 364-58 vote, lawmakers tabled the impeachment resolution from Green; every Republican voted to turn away Green's resolution, while four Democrats voted present.

Despite the objections of their leadership, 58 Democrats voted in support of Green's resolution — a tally that likely reflects the growing thirst on the left for an impeachment push. Green’s articles of impeachment do not allege Trump has specifically committed a crime. Instead, Green argues that Trump has “brought disrepute, contempt, ridicule and disgrace on the presidency” and “sown discord among the people of the United States.”

To back up Green’s assertion, the articles of impeachment cite Trump’s equivocating response to the violent clash between white supremacists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Va.; retweets of anti-Muslim videos posted by a fringe British nationalist group; criticisms of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality; disparate treatment of hurricane victims in Puerto Rico compared to Texas and Florida; and personal attacks against Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), who like Green is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

2. Too soon. We know he's guilty but can't quite prove it yet. Need Mueller to catch him red handed

Anything short of total proof won't be enough to get the votes
