Articles of Impeachment Against Trump Have Just Been Unveiled By House Democrat

The statute establishes a mechanism by which the Vice-President could take power if the President dies, resigns, or is removed from office. 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 Times called the Democrats' prospects of winning both the House and Senate next year "unlikely".

In what marked an escalation of the Democratic Party's opposition to Donald Trump, Congressman Al Green introduced a resolution to impeach the president on the floor of the House of Representatives Wednesday.

That, he said, has caused 'immediate injury to American society'.

Green, one of only a handful of Democrats publicly calling for impeachment, told reporters he pulled the resolution to give his colleagues "a chance to review it".

Green had planned to introduce the articles of impeachment on October 2, but postponed after a gunman killed 58 people in Las Vegas.

With Republicans in full control of Congress, there is no prospect in the near term that the president might be impeached.

Though the attempt never worked, Rose said that the Bulls did send the video to the trio of stars. His performance for the upcoming season is anyone's guess.

To accomplish this, Green introduced the articles of impeachment as "privileged" which meant the House would be forced to consider the articles on the House floor within two legislative days. The Texas Democrat was not present when the GOP presiding officer brought the resolution up for consideration, meaning that the House will not have to vote on impeachment for the foreseeable future, The Hill reports. Green has vowed to force a recorded up-or-down vote in his motion, even if Republicans seek to table it.

Green cited Trump's statements and actions related to Muslims, Puerto Rican hurricane victims, transgender Americans, NFL football players and others.

But Democratic leaders have mainly focused on attacking Mr. Trump's policy agenda; they have urged rank-and-file liberal activists to hold off on talk of impeachment while the gravest investigations into Mr. Trump's conduct run their course.

Under the Constitution, if the House votes to impeach the president, the Senate may remove the president from office with a two-thirds majority vote.

"Many members are telling him that this is a fruitless effort and will end in a complicated vote that can not be easily explained", a senior Democratic aide said.

This second round of impeachment articles against the president may have sounded impressive, but once again it has already turned out to be a lot of sound and fury, signifying nothing much of real importance.
