A Texas Lawmaker Introduced Articles Of Impeachment Against Trump

Bill Clinton is one of only two US presidents to have been impeached

The motions must be considered by the House and so Democrats will be forced to go on record about whether to impeach the president, CNN said.

"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 wrote in a letter to House lawmakers on Tuesday.

The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday rejected an impeachment resolution brought to the floor by Rep. Al Green (D-TX).

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

Still, 58 Democrats voted to advance Mr.

The White House dismissed the effort, telling Politico that Green and the others who voted with him are "extremists". Republicans control the House by a comfortable margin, while even many Democrats are lukewarm or cold to the idea of impeachment.

Fortunately, family members and relatives do not need to download the same Messenger Kids app in order to chat with the toddlers. But she said that while Facebook made the app "with the best of intentions", it's not yet known how people will actually use it.

Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas says Trump has associated his presidency with causes rooted in bigotry and racism. All Republicans voted to turn away Green's resolution, while four Democratic lawmakers voted present.

"Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment", Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said in a statement.

The resolution offered by Green states that Trump has sown discord among the people of the USA based on national origin and race. "The special counsel's investigation is moving forward as well, and those inquiries should be allowed to continue". "I will tell them that tomorrow we will bring articles of impeachment to the floor of the Congress of United States of America for a vote".

The effort is certain to lose.

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".
