Texas Rep. Al Green introduced articles of impeachment against President Trump this week. Today, the House voted against them.
The vote was to table, or kill, impeachment.
332-95, House rejects Al Green effort to impeach Trump over racism. While an overwhelming bipartisan rejection, 95 Democrats voted against tabling it. That's more than the 58 Democrats who voted against tabling impeachment in 2017 and 66 Dems in 2018. https://t.co/dMs0aNc1Cg
The House has voted to table Rep. Al Green's impeachment resolution. The vote was 332 to 95. Of note: More Democrats voted against tabling the resolution than have publicly come out in support for impeachment. @MSNBC
UPDATE: House overwhelmingly votes to table measure to impeach the President. While easily ending the effort, more Democrats that ever voted to continue impeachment proposal, at least 90 including Judiciary Chair @JerryNadler, who wants to refer the matter to his committee.
Al Green never has a strategy for *passing* the impeachment resolution; all he ever does is irritate Dems who have to explain why they oppose it. Plenty of Dems who want to begin the actual process will oppose this bc it's toothless. https://t.co/Hadex1xXpf

With all the revolutionary tech that’s out there, it’s pretty sad that finding a simple stud in your wall can feel like dowsing for water.
