BREAKING House Overwhelmingly Rejects Attempt To Impeach Trump

The House on Wednesday overwhelmingly rejected an effort by Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) to impeach President Trump.
 
In a 364-58 vote, lawmakers tabled the impeachment resolution from Green; four Democrats voted present.

The vote split Democrats, with many of them — including members of leadership — calling Green's move premature.

Green’s articles of impeachment do not allege Trump has specifically committed a crime. Instead, Green argues that Trump has “brought disrepute, contempt, ridicule and disgrace on the presidency” and “sown discord among the people of the United States.”
