Impeach Trump? House Dem offers resolution and withdraws it

Impeach Trump? House Dem offers resolution and withdraws it

The congressman's articles say Trump's transgressions have been "political".

The longtime Democratic U.S. representative from Houston has been quick to voice his disapproval and join others in criticizing and calling for the president's impeachment in the months - yeah, it has only been months - since Trump was sworn into office in January. In July, Brad Sherman of California introduced a similar resolution that accused the president of obstructing justice when he fired James Comey amid the ongoing F.B.I. investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 election.

In his argument for impeaching the president, Green read out several of Trump's tweets, arguing that his statements on several recent national controversies had "incited bigotry" against various minority groups, including African-Americans playing in the National Football League, transgender individuals serving in the military and Puerto Ricans recovering from a natural disaster. The Constitution specifies that a president can be impeached for "treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors", though in practice there are widely divergent views on what represents an impeachable offense. Green also noted how Trump failed to condemn the white nationalists in Charlottesville, with articles stating that Trump "is fueling an alt-right hate machine".

New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, told The Hill in response to Green's threat: "We're not there yet", despite Trump having done "really awful things".

The same Senate acquitted him by a single vote, saving his presidency.

Indeed, Republicans were eager to hold a vote on the bill.

There is little enthusiasm for Green's article of impeachment among Democrats in the House. Green pulled back from forcing a vote, however, under apparent pressure from other Democrats.

Green introduced the articles of impeachment as a privileged motion, which normally would have compelled the House to vote on the resolution within two legislative days. GOP aides said they planned to move to table Green's resolution, killing it outright.

Cardinals trade for running back Adrian Peterson
Former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is now also reportedly a former member of the New Orleans Saints . The trade comes after the Saints climbed back to.500 with a 20-0 shutout win over the Miami Dolphins in London England.

But within an hour of introducing the impeachment articles, Green missed his shot. The resolution was therefore not offered and is not getting an imminent vote.

"It would be a disservice to the American people for it to be voted on immediately", he said.

This second round of impeachment articles against the president may have sounded impressive, but once again it has already turned out to be a lot of sound and fury, signifying nothing much of real importance.
