The vote to proceed on the impeachment resolution by Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, failed 364-58. All the votes in favor of considering impeachment were from Democrats; every Republican voted against the measure. Four Democrats - including Alabama's Terri Sewell - voted "present" on resolution. Green introduced the measure today over the objections of Democratic leaders and as special counsel Robert Mueller continues his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Green didn't cite any criminal actions for a possible impeachment but said Trump was "inciting hatred and hostility" with comments he made about race and transgender individuals. Green's measure was a "privileged resolution," meaning a vote must occur within two legislative days. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., voted to table Green's resolution. In a joint statement, Pelosi and Hoyer said, "now is not the time to consider" impeaching Trump but added "legitimate questions have been raised about his fitness to lead this nation. "Right now, Congressional committees continue to be deeply engaged in investigations into the President's actions both before and after his inauguration. The special counsel's investigation is moving forward as well, and those inquiries should be allowed to continue. Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment," the statement said. Green disagreed. "This is not about Democrats, it is about democracy. It is not about Republicans, it is about the fate of our republic," he said.
