The US House of Representatives has overwhelmingly voted against a resolution in a Democratic controlled House to impeach President Donald Trump, sponsored by those hoping to capitalize on the backlash to Trump’s attacks on four congresswomen.
The majority of Democrats sided with Republicans to put a pin in the resolution, which was tabled with a final vote of 332-95 on Wednesday.
Introduced by Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), the articles of impeachment denounced Trump as “unfit to defend the ideals that have made America great.”
Green held up a series of Trump’s tweets telling four Democratic feminist progressive congresswomen to “go back” to where they came from.
It was Green’s third attempt to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump, though his previous attempts in 2017 and 2018 failed in a Republican-controlled House.
It is unlikely to be his last, as many of the Democrats who voted to table this measure said they did so because they were waiting to hear testimony from former special counsel Robert Mueller later in the month.
Green, however, said waiting for Mueller’s testimony to consider impeachment would be “justice delayed.”
