Democrats finally got their wish.
Liberals in Congress forced a vote on articles of impeachment against Donald Trump.
And no one could believe the result.
Democrat Congressman Al Green was able to force a vote on impeaching Trump based on ridiculous charges such as his response to the tragedy in Charlottesville and the President demanding NFL players stand for the national anthem.
But the result was stunning.
Even Democrats ran away from trying to impeach Trump and the vote failed by an embarrassing 356-58 margin.
Even Nancy Pelosi rejected the idea of impeaching Trump.
“The motion to sideline the measure — killing the effort — was approved 364-58, with four Democrats voting present.
The vote was forced by Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), who introduced articles of impeachment describing Trump as a bigot who incites hate and has demeaned the presidency.
“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,” Green said on the House floor as he introduced the articles.
But Green, a seven-term, Houston-area lawmaker, said his conscience compelled him to push forward with the measure, even though he acknowledged he was unlikely to succeed.
“Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment,” Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said in a joint statement, shortly after Green introduced his articles of impeachment.”
Pushing impeachment is a losing cause for Democrats.
They do not want to be seen as part of the swamp in overturning the results of the 2016 election.
If conservatives believe Trump’s Presidency is at stake, they will flock to the polls in 2018 and block the Democrats’ attempt to take back control of Congress.
