Congressman pulls resolution forcing the House of Representatives to vote on impeaching Trump
Texas congressman Al Green (D) on Wednesday filed articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
But he later pulled the measure to prevent it from being killed.
“But when the GOP presiding officer moved to begin the process to consider the resolution less than an hour later, Green did not show up. The resolution was therefore not offered and is not getting an imminent vote,” The Hill reported.
Green said on the House floor that Trump had undermined the integrity of the White House.
Green filed a privileged resolution, meaning that the House of Representatives would have had to act on the measure within two legislative days.
The Republican-led House reportedly planned to vote to table the resolution.
