Democrat stops just short of forcing House vote on Trump's impeachment

Democrat stops just short of forcing House vote on Trump's impeachment

On Wednesday Green introduced articles of impeachment on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, livening up a session that was otherwise focused on whistleblower protection - and then quickly missed his chance to force an up-or-down vote in the House.

Last week, Rep. Green postponed introducing the articles of impeachment following the Las Vegas concert shooting. But when, less than an hour later, the House's presiding officer called the resolution up for action, Green did not appear on the floor to offer it. Green's articles of impeachment argue that Trump "is fueling an alt-right hate machine" which is "causing immediate injury to American society".

"Before I left the floor, there was an understanding with the parliamentarian and other persons who were there that it would not be voted on immediately", he said.

The guard was investigating an alarm signaling that a door had been left open on the same floor as Paddock's room . Investigators found more than 40 firearms in Paddock's hotel room and at his residence in Mesquite, Nevada.

The impeachment of Mr Trump would require a majority vote in the House and a two-thirds majority in the Senate - both of which are now controlled by Republicans.

Green's impeachment articles do not accuse Trump of any crimes, which the lawmaker argues are not necessary to remove a federal official from office. Any move to impeach before those probes are complete, they have said, would be premature. GOP aides said they planned to move to table Green's resolution, killing it outright.

New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, told The Hill in response to Green's threat: "We're not there yet", despite Trump having done "really awful things".

Another still condemns Trump for saying "three to five million people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election". "Members don't want this vote".

Some party strategists are also concerned that putting impeachment on the ballot in 2018 could backfire, because so many Democratic senators are seeking re-election in states Mr. Trump won. But he declined to say whether he had been approached after he gave his remarks.

Green did not rule out forcing a future vote on his resolution: "I will not indicate when, but I will indicate that it will be brought up". "There is one among us who seems to incite hatred, bigotry, and.discrimination", Green, a Democrat, said in his Wednesday address in the House. He argued that Trump's "relationship with Vladimir Putin and Russian Federation", allegations that Trump is seeking to "promote his own business interests" as president, and his "seeming determination to go to war" as grounds for impeachment. The Constitution specifies that a president can be impeached for "treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors", though in practice there are widely divergent views on what represents an impeachable offense.
