Skip to comments.House votes to kill impeachment effort against Trump
Posted on 07/17/2019 3:05:35 PM PDT by SMGFan
The House on Wednesday voted 332-95 to kill the first articles of impeachment brought forward under the new Democratic majority, showing off a deep divide among Democrats on whether to go forward with an effort to unseat President Trump.
A majority of Democrats along with the chamber's Republicans voted to table the measure sponsored by Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), while 95 Democrats voted in favor of it.
It's the first time the Democratic House has been confronted with a vote on impeachment, and comes a week before special counsel Robert Mueller is set to testify before two committees on Capitol Hill.
Green, whose previous impeachment votes have accused Trump of inflaming racial tensions, offered the measure immediately after the House on Tuesday voted to condemn Trump over tweets targeting four minority Democratic congresswomen.

The Squaws are going to go crazy!
Green can tell his constituents that he impeached President Trump but that white people saved his butt.
Please Democrat idiotsIMPEACH, OR YOU LOSE ALL CREDIBILITY WITH YOUR INSANE BASE!
Green better pray his lunatic fringe is willing to listen.
He can just tell them he impeached him and theyll never know the difference.
95 congressman that have no sense of reality. It’s worse then i thought.
Al Green is a total loooser.
Pelosi hopes she’s playing it “smart”. Time will tell. She could have fought those with Green who voted for the resolution, to keep it from even coming to a vote.
I think she figured the mere fact that it got a vote will be favorable enough for the Dims.
If it is percieved by the voters as just a ruse, because only how the impeachment would not clear the Senate and not because Pelosi et al were actually against impleachment, Pelosi will be seen as weak, not smart.
Sure, you go here .. started before vote began.
The Democrats keep digging the hole they are in deeper.
Pelosi knows Impeachment is a lose-lose situation. Even if the House voted in favor the Senate would not vote to remove the President. The this was political theater of the worse kind.
The biggest loser is Pelosi. It appears she is unable to control the members of her party.
Does this mean President Hillary! will not take office?
Chuckle, chuckle, snort.
Al has a scary face.... Lots of angry lines on his mug.
That vote is nothing short of a major humiliation for Green and company, and a big win for Pelosi.
Yep. Most communists are. These POSs have never had to confront a GOP POTUS that just loves to fight back and has an IQ that makes them look like kindergardeners. They’re at their wits end trying to so “something”.....
Come on, RATS, go ahead, make our day....impeach him, you cowardly bassturds!!!
How much longer will the Dems be able to keep the kooks at bay? Theyre not gonna stay restrained forever. When the Dems lose next year all hell is going to break loose on THEIR SIDE!
Trump can say that a majority of Democrats voted for him.
Beware squeaking squaw squads...
