House overwhelmingly votes to defeat Democrat's bid to impeach President Trump

Green and his allies were criticized for the effort, with the White House labeling them as "extremists". "It is not about Republicans, it is about the fate of our Republic", Green wrote to colleagues Tuesday. All Republicans opposed the motion, along with 126 Democrats. Green hasn't listened, though, and his aggressive support for impeachment might cause problems for Democrats in 2018.

Led by Democratic Representative Al Green, the impeachment attempt was sidelined through a vote of 364-58, with House Democrats siding with Republicans to defeat the measure.

The resolution offered by Green states that Trump has sown discord among the people of the USA based on national origin and race.

To back the claim, the articles of impeachment cite Trump's equivocating response to the violent clash between white supremacists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia; his sharing of anti-Muslim videos posted online by a fringe British nationalist group; and attacks at NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest what they say police brutality.

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

However, Wisconsin does have the better defensive unit as the Badgers are only giving up 12.0 points on defense and 236.9 yards. The combination of Wisconsin's defense and the questions around Barrett's knee might make this one more of a low-scoring game.

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.

Several Dems contend that it's premature to bring articles of impeachment before special counsel Robert Mueller completes his investigation into the Kremlin's election meddling. "I will tell them that tomorrow we will bring articles of impeachment to the floor of the Congress of United States of America for a vote".

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that while Trump has made several statements and taken actions "that are beyond the pale for most Americans", it was important to allow congressional committees probing Russian meddling in the United States election and possible Trump campaign collusion to proceed with their work.

Representative Dan Kildee said Democratic lawmakers can not allow themselves to be drawn into a process "that's not thoughtful or complete or might not even be the conclusion we ought to draw".
