BREAKING: Results: House votes on resolution to impeach Trump
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by NBCNews.com:
The House voted on Wednesday to table a resolution from Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, to impeach President Donald Trump over racist comments he made about four congresswomen of color, effectively killing the measure.
The vote marked the first time the Democratic-controlled chamber has weighed in on impeachment, an issue that has created a widening schism within the party. Progressive newcomers and several 2020 candidates have pushed for impeachment proceedings, but the House leadership, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has been resistant.
The article goes on to state the following:
Pelosi, D-Calif., said Wednesday morning that she does not support the resolution.
“We have six committees working on following the facts in terms of any abuse of power, obstruction of justice and the rest that the president may have engaged in,” she said later in the morning at a news conference. “That is the serious path we’re on — not that Mr. Green is not serious, but we’ll deal with that on the floor.”
