Rep. Al Green Introduces Impeachment Articles

HeadlineJul 17, 2019

Meanwhile, Texas Congressmember Al Green introduced articles of impeachment against President Trump Tuesday, forcing the House to take up the measure later this week. Green’s resolution does not guarantee a House vote, as lawmakers could decide to table, or even kill, the resolution. The issue of impeachment has divided Democratic lawmakers, with a number of outspoken legislators repeatedly calling for the move. House Speaker Pelosi, however, has resisted those calls, focusing instead on congressional investigations. In May, she said impeaching Trump was too divisive and “not worth it.”
