58 House Democrats Vote To Impeach Trump; Vote Fails

Tyler Durden's picture

We have officially lost count of the number of times that Democrats have now attempted to pass a resolution to impeach President Trump, let alone, alleged sex abuser Congressman Al Green who brought today's motion. In today's case, even his own party's leadership voted against it, calling the move premature.

Texas representative, Al Green, a liberal lawmaker, forced the House to vote Wednesday on impeaching President Donald Trump, despite suggestions from the Republicans and Democrats that he let it go.

As SHTFplan's mac Slavo noted, Green says in a letter that he’s wanting a vote on impeachment because “we now have a bigot in the White House who incites hatred and hostility.” But, even other Democrats agree that there is no evidence of impeachable offenses. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi even said that any impeachment effort should await hard evidence Trump has committed an impeachable offense.

According to USA Today, Green’s resolution accuses Trump of causing “harm to American society.” It cites his support for banning Muslim immigrants and comments defending participants in a white supremacists’ rally after this year’s riot in Charlottesville, Virginia.  Green also argued that Trump’s conduct in the White House (while admittedly not criminal) had amounted to “high misdemeanor” and warranted removal from the Oval Office. “For too long, we have allowed our civility to prevent us from confronting the invidious incivility of President Donald J. Trump,” he said.

However, Green's vote failed dismally with 58 Democrats and 0 Republicans voting for it, overwhelmingly rejected his motion. As The Hill reports, in a 364-58 vote, lawmakers tabled the impeachment resolution from Green; four Democrats voted present.

The vote split Democrats, with many of them - including members of leadership - calling Green's move premature.

Green’s articles of impeachment do not allege Trump has specifically committed a crime.

Instead, Green argues that Trump has “brought disrepute, contempt, ridicule and disgrace on the presidency” and “sown discord among the people of the United States.”

House Democratic leaders have made clear they don’t support impeachment at this point, citing the ongoing special counsel investigation of whether the Trump campaign was involved with the Russian government’s effort to influence the 2016 presidential election.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) voted to table Green's resolution.

In a statement, they said there are "legitimate questions" about Trump's fitness for office, but said that the ongoing investigations by congressional committees and the FBI into Trump need to play out.

Here are the billsd and resolutions so far this year that involved "impeachment"

House Rejects Democrat's Resolution To Impeach Trump (Again)

My response: Everytime I look at Al Green, the following thought comes to mind every single time without exception.

"You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."

About as effective as the Repubs repealing ObamaCare 2,000 times pre-Trump
Then crickets.

But, the House gets taken by the left hand side of the One Big Party, could see some real fireworks, maybe even a vote.
C'est la vie

Keep secreaming Al.  You Progs are losing your audience, even out here on the Left Coast

How did that proto-human get elected to Congress?  I'm just amazed that it learned how to talk.

~"Nancy Pelosi even said that any impeachment effort should await hard evidence Trump has committed an impeachable offense."~

So Green is just more proof that leftists are all about "feelings" and not about facts and proof. What percentage of Green's district is black? This little stunt is not about impeaching Trump but about having something to thump his chest about back home and getting his name in the papers to try to prove he's relevant as a member of the minority party. What an asshat.

When did they elect a gorilla to the House, I must have missed something. Looks like a picture out of Planet of the Apes.

The Dems don't have a single person worth half a sack of shit ready to do something positive in the Executive office. They haven't figured out that bluster doesn't get it done. What a sad and sorry waste that party is.

Wake me up when the Dems are in a position to actually do this, as opposed to grandstanding while out of power like the Republicans did on healthcare.

JimmyJones's picture

At least that Grand standing was justified. 

techpriest's picture

Right. My main point is, when the GOP was out of power they were screaming "Repeal Obamacare," but the minute they were in a position to actually do it, they didn't.

What I'm wondering is, would the DNC still try an actual impeachment proceeding if they were actually in a position to make it go through? Or is it the same okie doke?

Pelosium. Sounds like something radioactive. Her thoughts do have a half-life measured in milliseconds, so you may be on to something.

How do you manage to leave your mom's basement everyday... knowing full well that there are jack-booted skinhead nazi "joos" hiding around every corner? Tracking your every move.  Manipulating every bad thing in YOUR life to happen.  Knowing that you'll desperately have to clutch your coin purse close to your chest, lest they shyster your lunch money away???

 

You might be able to buy insurance to protect yourself from this menace at the same agencies that sell the robot insurance for the seniors.
