Try, Try Again: Democrats to Bring Impeachment Articles Against Trump Wednesday

Yes very few lawmakers didnt want to kill a resolution to impeach Donald Trump

Pelosi and Hoyer said in a statement that while legitimate questions exist about Trump's fitness to lead, now is not the time for impeachment. "For this reason I will bring articles of impeachment to a vote in the House of Representatives", Green wrote in a letter to colleagues. "It causes unparalleled destruction to our society in the long- and short-term that will not easily heal".

The US House of Representatives overwhelmingly rejected a congressman's motion on Wednesday to impeach President Trump, as Democratic Party leaders argued that now was not the time to pursue the effort.

Democratic leaders are expected to oppose Green's resolution, but aides said they aren't whipping rank-and-file members on the measure.

"The special counsel's investigation is moving forward as well, and those inquiries should be allowed to continue", she added, referring to Robert Mueller.

"Their time would be better spent focusing on tax relief for American families and businesses, and working to fund our troops and veterans through the holiday season rather than threaten a government shutdown", spokesman Raj Shah told the website. Instead, he argues that Trump has "brought disrepute, contempt, ridicule and disgrace on the presidency" and "sown discord among the people of the United States".

But they said the ongoing investigations by congressional committees and the FBI into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow during last year's election need to play out.

In all, 126 Democrats joined Republicans in voting to table Green's effort in the GOP-led House.

It is vital, however, that we distinguish impeachable offenses from offensive behavior, divisive political instincts, ineptitude, and poor judgment. The resolution accuses Trump of "high misdemeanor", worthy of removal from office.

Congressman Lou Correa said although he was not a supporter of many of Trump's policies, he does not support impeaching him at this time. It divides and damages the social fabric of our country in ways that obstruction of justice cannot.

"Practically and politically, I think most of us can agree that passing articles of impeachment in this House isn't realistic at this moment in our history".
