Democrat plans to force impeachment vote on President Trump today

Democrat plans to force impeachment vote on President Trump today

Green's effort is certain to be opposed by all Republicans. "It causes unparalleled destruction to our society in the long- and short-term that will not easily healed".

The resolution will surely fail, as not enough Democrats are on board and Republicans still control the House. The articles also mention Trump's comments regarding NFL protests during the National Anthem, and the anti-Muslim videos he retweeted on November 29.

"It frankly doesn't surprise me that all of these political insiders find it a threat to their power, so the fact of the matter is what we're doing is trying to give a voice to the American people so they can speak up together and demand some sanity from Washington, D.C.", Steyer said.

"It's not someplace that I think we should go", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said on CNN's "State of the Union" last month. For numerous President's critics, it is axiomatic that the ties between the President's campaign and the Kremlin and the efforts since the earliest days of the transition by the Trump-Kushner clan to use the presidency to enrich themselves provide more than enough fodder for impeachment.




Democratic leaders appeared to have prevented Green from bringing an impeachment resolution in October, when the congressman ultimately stopped short of offering it. "And there are many who want to know what's next, what will happen, after there is a vote". Both remained in office after the Senate voted to impeach failed.

The resolution has no real chance of advancing in the House. But he later pledged to force a vote by Christmas. But even a motion to table could present difficulties for some of Green's colleagues as a symbolic vote on removing Trump from office. But if they vote against tabling the motion, they could be forced to explain to moderate and independent voters why they acted to impeach Trump before the investigations had concluded. The aide said members had raised concerns about forcing an impeachment vote during caucus meetings on multiple occasions.

Green's intentions have raised concerns among other Democrats, however, with some arguing that the move may be premature and ultimately work against them.
