Try, Try Again: Democrats to Bring Impeachment Articles Against Trump Wednesday

While acknowledging his effort to force an impeachment vote was facing opposition from fellow Democrats, Green said he believes there is a need for Congress to discuss Trump's fitness for office.

Democratic leaders have urged Green to drop the idea, CNN said. Republicans are expected to offer a motion to table the resolution later Wednesday, effectively killing Green's resolution. All Republicans opposed the motion, along with 126 Democrats.

In the resolution, Green argues that Trump has sewn discord among Americans "by associating the majesty and dignity of the presidency with causes rooted in white supremacy, bigotry, racism, anti-Semitism, white nationalism, or neo-Nazism".

"Democrats are firmly focused on taking real, effective steps to improve the lives of hard-working Americans and defeating Republicans' cruel barrage of attacks on the middle class", Pelosi and Hoyer said in a joint statement. The leaders said Congressional inquiries and Robert Mueller's investigation into connections between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation should be allowed to continue.

"Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment".

"I love my country", Representative Al Green of Texas said in a memo to colleagues Tuesday, before adding he meant to bring articles of impeachment against a president who was "unmindful of the high duties of his high office and the dignity and properties thereof". Voting prematurely forces Democrats facing re-election in tough districts to go on the record about their desire to impeach Trump, leaving them with a sort of Catch-22: If they vote to kill the resolution, they risk alienating the blue half of their voters; if they vote to proceed, they risk alienating the other half.

Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee of MI says Democratic lawmakers can't let themselves be drawn into a process "that's not thoughtful or complete or might not even be the conclusion we ought to draw".

Green's impeachment articles cite incidents including Trump's defense of protesters after a rally of white supremacists at this year's riot in Charlottesville, Virginia.
