    House To Vote On Articles Of Impeachment Wednesday

    House To Vote On Articles Of Impeachment Wednesday

    After Texas Rep. Al Green introduced articles of impeachment against President Trump for the third time yesterday, House Democrats are preparing to vote on Wednesday afternoon on whether to move forward with the process, Politico reports.
    While this is Green's third time introducing letters of impeachment, it's the first time since Democrats took control of the House in January. And after the House voted to formally condemn Trump over his "racist" tweets, more lawmakers might be feeling compelled to defy Nancy Pelosi's "no impeachment" policy and side with "the squad" and their allies.

    As The Washington Post reports, Green's move will force House Democrats to deal with the issue in the near term because of the privileged nature of the resolution.
    Under House rules, Democratic leadership can decide to try to table the impeachment articles, effectively killing them for now and risk criticism from the party's liberal base; refer them to the House Judiciary Committee for possible consideration; or allow the vote to proceed.
    If leaders do nothing, Green can force a vote on the impeachment articles within two legislative days of introducing the articles. To be clear, the vote wouldn't impeach Trump, it would merely be the first procedural step toward impeachment.
    The move comes as more than 80 members of the House have called for launching an impeachment inquiry, but the floor vote will also force all House Democrats to go on the record about an issue where they have yet to reach consensus.
    It appears that Green is planning to exercise his ability to force a vote on the articles.
    According to Politico, the measure is likely to fail. But that won't save Democrats from the political blowback that Pelosi and Schumer have feared all along (just look at the impact the House vote to condemn Trump has had on his polling).

    So sick of all these swamp rats wasting our time and tax dollars on this nonsense.

    They have done nothing for the American people but obstruct, lie, cheat and steal from us. Hell bent on serving illegal aliens and bringing more foreigners to our soil that have a direct negative impact on us all.

    They are conjuring up this crap to stall, waste time, and waiting for the next election.

    Two and a half years of this BS needs to be shut down!

    Now these jerks are on the campaign trail 365 days a year, year after year, and never take a break from it and get anything done!
