Proposal To Impeach Trump Overwhelmingly Rejected

Proposal To Impeach Trump Overwhelmingly Rejected

Although his speech is not criminal, it divides and damages the country, Green wrote in a letter to his colleagues, according to CNN.

"Tomorrow we will bring Articles of Impeachment to the floor of the Congress of the United States of America for a vote", Green said Tuesday morning on the House floor, announcing that "three prominent Democrats" have asked to meet with him to discuss impeachment.

The House has overwhelmingly voted to kill a resolution from a Democratic lawmaker to impeach President Donald Trump.

"Colorado families deserve to have confidence in our elected leaders and this is one step toward ensuring our government remains accountable to the people.I've never hesitated to fight for our values as a representative, and I won't hesitate to fight for them as your governor".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, in an interview with the Daily Beast last month, advised Democrats to wait before moving forward with impeachment proceedings.

Democrats have debated the political merits of pressing for impeachment, and some have cautioned that an aggressive stance could provoke a backlash by Trump's conservative base at the ballot box.

Democratic leaders have previously warned party members against enacting articles of impeachment against Trump, arguing that such a move would be premature given the ongoing investigations into the former New York businessman's election campaign and administration.

Green also has cited Trump lashing out at NFL players who kneeled during the National Anthem to protest police brutality and his Muslim travel ban. "And I know that this is a bumpy road", Green said on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" Wednesday morning.

While virtually all Republicans and many Democrats are expected to vote to table Green's resolution, a few Democrats said Wednesday they will vote for Green's measure. "It causes unparalleled destruction to our society in the long- and short-term that will not easily heal".
