Proposal To Impeach Trump Overwhelmingly Rejected

07 December 2017

Green has discussed impeaching Trump since the spring and previously filed impeachment articles in October, almost forcing a vote at that time before House Democratic leaders persuaded him to temporarily abandon the effort. If Pelosi and the House minority leadership want to keep impeachment hopes alive, they need to rein him in.

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". That's because Republicans narrowly control the House and Democrats are divided on the issue.

"Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment".

Democratic leaders are expected to oppose Green's resolution, but aides said they aren't whipping rank-and-file members on the measure. I understand why many of my Democratic colleagues, including many who believe President Trump should ultimately be impeached, voted no on today's resolution.

Apple To Pay Irish State Aid Bill From 2018
Jersey is a self-governing dependency of the United Kingdom , and the island does not charge corporate tax for most companies. It's understood that Apple will start paying the €13 billion in back taxes into an escrow account in first quarter of 2018.

As examples, Green's articles of impeachment cite Trump's equivocating response to the violence from a white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Va., in August, as well as his attacks on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality. Green also charges Trump with "sowing discord" among the American people.

"Legitimate questions have been raised about his fitness to lead this nation. The special counsel's investigation is moving forward as well, and those inquiries should be allowed to continue".

The White House quickly dismissed the impeachment effort, labeling Green and his allies "extremists".

The top two Democrats in the House - Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Minority Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland - said Green's effort was premature.

The House has to approve the articles of impeachment by a simple majority before they would move on to the Senate.

We are a long way from having the votes in Congress to impeach, a vote that must happen on a bipartisan basis.

Representative Dan Kildee said Democratic lawmakers can not allow themselves to be drawn into a process "that's not thoughtful or complete or might not even be the conclusion we ought to draw".
