Proposal To Impeach Trump Overwhelmingly Rejected

  • If the GOP doesnt get a handle on Trump soon he will be the single issue Democrats need to take the

A Democrat congressman has vowed to force a vote to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday, a move party leaders have long sought to block despite mounting frustration from a small group of liberal lawmakers.

"I will meet with them in my office and here's what I will say: I will tell them that impeachment is not about Democrats", Green said during a speech before the US House of Representatives.

Green's articles of impeachment do not allege Trump has specifically committed a crime. Minority Leader Nancy PelosiNancy Patricia D'Alesandro PelosiRight scrambles GOP budget strategy Dem rep Moulton calls on Franken to resign Mark Mellman: History's judgment MORE (D-Calif.) and other senior Democrats believe that talk of impeachment at this point is premature, citing the ongoing special counsel probe into Trump campaign contacts with the Russian government.

California wildfire: mass evacuation in Ventura country
The fire erupted near Santa Paula, a city of some 30,000 people about 60 miles (97 kilometers) northwest of Los Angeles. The fire also struck some key transmission lines, knocking out power to tens of thousands of customers.

All in all, it was a politically inept decision on Green's part. Green wrote in a letter to House lawmakers on Tuesday.

At least a handful of fellow Democrats may vote for Green's resolution.

The most likely result, however, is that House Speaker Paul Ryan will bring up a vote on a "motion to table" Green's impeachment resolution Wednesday - essentially killing it.

Green cited Trump's equivocating in the wake of a deadly white nationalist rally in Virginia, his attacks on Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) and his criticisms of NFL players' kneeling during the national anthem in protest of police abusing African-Americans.

"Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment", Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said in a statement. "The special counsel's investigation is moving forward as well, and those inquiries should be allowed to continue".

"Therefore, Donald John Trump by causing such harm to the society of the United States is unfit to be President and warrants impeachment, trial, and removal from office", the resolution concludes.

But after decades of operation, the "attitude control thrusters" that turn the spacecraft by firing tiny "puffs" had degraded. It reached interstellar space in 2012, making it the first object made by humans to leave our solar system .

It remains highly unlikely that the majority of House representatives will vote to impeach Trump, as it would be necessary for the motion to be passed onto the Senate for a two-thirds vote.
