House Dem pulls back from forcing impeachment vote

October 12, 2017

Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) stopped short of forcing a vote Wednesday on articles of impeachment against President Trump, but insisted his push isn’t over yet.

Green announced his intention on the House floor to offer the impeachment articles as a privileged resolution, which under House rules allows any member to force a vote within two legislative days.

The GOP presiding officer moved to consider Green’s resolution less than an hour later, but Green didn’t show up, allowing the window for consideration to pass for now.

Green could have forced a procedural vote to challenge the GOP’s ruling, which would have served as the first vote in Congress related to impeaching Trump.

But he decided not to, saying he wanted his colleagues and the public to review the articles of impeachment first.

      The whole “black caucus is a joke…Racist, Crooked(just look at all the corrupt deals they got away with) and THEY think they can Impeach President Trump? Shows the Stupidity…Loud and Clear,as THEY should be Investigated for Their Activities/Crimes Obama gave a pass to!

  • Tiger says:

    They are impeaching themselves daily. Keep it up Green, good work as the President continues to roll onward faster to MAGA.

    Trump has Upset The Apple Cart In DC…For Both Parties.
    He criticizes both sides for sitting on their Butts and doing Nothing…to me that is as it should be.
    The Democrats continued talk of Impeachment, I hope will haunt them in the next election. Democrats Obstruct, it was expected but Not By Republicans…
    Trump needs to Tweet only Policy and Procedure and Regulations and STOP This Petty Tweeting…He has the Potential to be a Good President but Republicans especially in the Senate need TO support Him…

      All these republicans and democrats who do not back Trump do it for a reason. The reason has nothing to do with the good of the people. Only the good of the two crime families is on their mind. I have written and contacted my representatives but that is just a waste of time. Almost like asking Al Gore about global warming and what can be done if it indeed exists and why did we have high and low temperatures as far back as 100 years? Where was the effect of the automobiles and factories which almost didn’t even exist.
      How is it that the weather people can’t even get a 100 % correct weather forecast on a seven day period but Al can predict it for 100 years.

    Jobs are up, unemployment is down, median wage has gone up, fewer people on government assistance, stock market is crazy high, 401K’s are earning again, we’re standing up to our enemies – The Democrats have to impeach President Trump… If country continues on this path they won’t be able to destroy it. Maybe they can impeach him for standing for the National Anthem.

  • Pete Bundy says:

    And what law has Trump broken? Now if Al had wanted to impeach Obama there were all kinds of things he could have brought up. I hope Texans send this jerk packing.

    Texas does NOT support Democrats. Quit being sore losers and work with our President
