House votes to kill resolution to impeach Trump

House votes to kill resolution to impeach Trump

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.

Green argued that Trump should be impeached for his rhetoric against certain racial and ethnic groups, including Latinos, Muslims and blacks.

The articles claim Trump brought shame and dishonor to the office of the president by being associated "with causes rooted in white supremacy, bigotry, racism, anti-Semitism, white nationalism, or neo-Nazism".

"Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment", they wrote in a statement. Every Republican voted against the measure, while 58 Democrats voted for impeachment, and four Democrats voted present.

"Legitimate questions have been raised about his fitness to lead this nation".

The resolution offered by Green states that Trump has sown discord among the people of the USA based on national origin and race.

Green's effort is also certain to be opposed by all Republicans.

Several Democratic lawmakers argued that it's premature to act before special counsel Robert Mueller's team completes its Russian Federation investigation.

House Democratic leaders aren't in favor of pushing impeachment at this point as they seek to win back the majority next year.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that while Trump has made several statements and taken actions "that are beyond the pale for most Americans", it was important to allow congressional committees probing Russian meddling in the USA election and possible Trump campaign collusion to proceed with their work.

"We ought to let Mr. Mueller complete his full investigation rather than engage in what would essentially be a public relations stunt", said Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Mich). "I will tell them that tomorrow, we will bring articles of impeachment to the floor of the Congress of the United States of America for a vote".
