58 House Dems vote for failed resolution on Trump impeachment
58 House Democrats vote on Wednesday to open debate on a motion to impeach President Trump, but the effort for Rep. Al Green of Texas was overwhelmingly rejected by a 364-58 margin.
Why it matters:
Green was the first member of Congress to advocate for Trump’s impeachment, an idea supported by 40% of Americans, according to an October
Public Religion Research Institute
. House Demoratic leadership called Green’s move premature.
“Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment," Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer
said in a joint statement,
moments after Green introduced his articles of impeachment.
