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

Rep. Al Green a Texas Democrat will force the House to vote on articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump this afternoon. Green announced the move yesterday on the House floor

On Tuesday, a Democratic congressman vowed to force the House of Representatives to vote on POTUS Donald Trump's impeachment.

"In doing this, hatred disguised as acceptable political correctness has festered in our body politic and polluted our discourse to our detriment".

The current resolution doesn't mention obstruction of justice but cites Trump's comments on race relations, transgender individuals and professional football players, who the president referred to as "sons of bitches" for not standing during the National Anthem.

Billionaire left-wing mega-donor Tom Steyer remained defiant Monday about his $20 million campaign to impeach Donald Trump in the face of Democratic Party opposition, saying "human beings" outside of Washington support it.

Pushing impeachment before the investigators complete their work, they say, could undermine the prospect of bipartisan action on impeachment should the inquiries uncover compelling evidence against the president.

Top Democratic leaders have repeatedly urged Green to refrain from bringing this up on the floor, arguing this is not the time to push impeachment.

Green and other House colleagues first announced the articles in early November.

But the process of impeaching an American president and removing him from office is complex and challenging.

Democratic leaders have previously warned party members against enacting articles of impeachment against Trump, arguing that such a move would be premature given the ongoing investigations into the former NY businessman's election campaign and administration.

The way the forced vote would happen is lawmakers in the House can offer "privileged" motions on impeachment, which means they can force the House floor to consider the subject.

The impeachment vote will likely only be procedural. But that would still force Democrats to take a potentially troublesome position on a symbolic vote. Both remained in office after the Senate voted to impeach failed.

Green last week said that he would bring a vote this week but had not given a specific date. "I will them that it's about democracy", he said. It is not about Republicans, it is about the fate of our Republic.
