"Therefore, Donald John Trump by causing such harm to the society of the United States is unfit to be President and warrants impeachment, trial, and removal from office", the resolution concludes.

It remains highly unlikely that the majority of House representatives will vote to impeach Trump, as it would be necessary for the motion to be passed onto the Senate for a two-thirds vote. It is not about Republicans, it is about the fate of our Republic.

GreenThe Hill's 12:30 Report Dem says he will force House vote on impeachment Wednesday House Dem pledges vote to impeach Trump next week MORE (D-Texas) is seeking to force a House floor vote later Wednesday on impeaching President Trump, setting up a tougher decision for Democrats than Republicans.

"In doing this, hatred disguised as acceptable political correctness has festered in our body politic and polluted our discourse to our detriment", Green said.

Lawmakers voted 364 to 58 in rejection of liberal Democrat Al Green's resolution to begin impeachment proceedings against the Republican president.

Al Green (R-Tex.) came to the House floor at 12:13 p.m. Wednesday to offer articles of impeachment under special House rules requiring a floor vote; he returned to the floor at 1:34 to force that vote. The leaders said Congressional inquiries and Robert Mueller's investigation into connections between Trump's campaign and Russia should be allowed to continue.

The articles specifically accuse Trump of "associating the majesty and dignity of the presidency with causes rooted in white supremacy, bigotry, racism, anti-Semitism, white nationalism, or Neo-Nazism". "May everyone vote their conscience knowing that history will judge us all".

The resolution will not pass the House. I've never hesitated to fight for our values as a representative, and I won't hesitate to fight for them as your governor. The president blamed both sides for the violence, including counter-protesters, sparking criticism from many who saw it as an equivocal response. "It is premature", Schumer told The Daily Beast in November.
