House votes to kill resolution to impeach Trump

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.

"Impeachment is an extraordinary measure, but it should be clear to anyone who examines the facts that President Trump's actions justify his impeachment, including his efforts to obstruct justice, his self-enrichment and serial violations of the Emoluments Clause, and his involvement in a cover-up stemming from his campaign's very likely collusion with Russian interests to undermine the 2016 presidential election".

Green and his allies were criticized for the effort, with the White House labeling them as "extremists".

It remains highly unlikely that the majority of House representatives will vote to impeach Trump, as it would be necessary for the motion to be passed onto the Senate for a two-thirds vote.

"I will meet with them in my office and here's what I will say: I will tell them that impeachment is not about Democrats", Green said during a speech before the US House of Representatives. I understand why many of my Democratic colleagues, including many who believe President Trump should ultimately be impeached, voted no on today's resolution.

Green's new eight-page resolution accuses the Republican president of "high misdemeanors", citing "harm to American society to the manifest injury of the people of the United States".

Green added that President Trump has "sown discord among the people of the United States".

"Democrats are firmly focused on taking real, effective steps to improve the lives of hard-working Americans and defeating Republicans' cruel barrage of attacks on the middle class", Pelosi and Hoyer said in a joint statement. "The special counsel's investigation is moving forward as well, and those inquiries should be allowed to continue".

Watch Green introduce the resolution below.

"Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment", they wrote in a statement.

The congressman also specifically cited Trump's comments after a deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August.
