FAIL! Democrats Just Held an Impeachment Vote of President Trump, and It Wasn’t Even Close (VIDEO)

Democrats in the House of Representatives forced an impeachment vote on President Trump today, and it failed miserably. It wasn’t even close.


The impeachment bill, introduced by Texas Rep. Al Green, could not even muster wide support among other Democrats, who saw no point in political grandstanding. For once.

The vote was 364-58 to table his legislation.

Henry Rogers of The Daily Caller reports.

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly rejected Texas Democratic Rep. Al Green’s bill to impeach President Donald Trump Wednesday on the House floor.

Green and five other House Democrats, introduced articles of impeachment against the president in November and listed a number of reasons they believe Trump should be impeached. He mentioned obstruction of justice, a violation of the Constitution’s foreign emoluments clause, a violation of the Constitution’s domestic emoluments clause, undermining the federal judiciary process and undermining the press.

As the bill was brought to the floor, Republicans called for a vote for the bill to be set aside. The vote to table the impeachment legislation was decided in a sweeping 364-58 vote.

Before the vote, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer told their Democratic colleagues in the House to stop pushing articles of impeachment against Trump.

“[Trump is] unmindful of the high duties of his high office,” Green said on the House floor Wednesday before the vote. “He has brought disrepute, contempt and ridicule on the presidency… He has harmed American society by publicly casting contempt on individuals and groups.”

It is unclear whether or not Green will continue to call for Trump’s impeachment after Wednesday’s vote.
