It’s Happening: House Democrats Schedule a Vote to Start Impeaching President Trump

House Democrats have officially pushed Speaker Nancy Pelosi to schedule a vote considering articles of impeachment for President Trump. The vote will take place Wednesday and is being spearheaded by Texas Democrat Al Green.

Green is no stranger to articles of impeachment for President Trump and has introduced them multiple times on the House floor. They’ve never received a vote. Last night he did it again, leading to a full House vote later today.  

Green's latest move came after the House voted to condemn President Trump for tweets about leftist Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib. 

For months, Speaker Pelosi has desperately tried to slow down the momentum for impeachment, which is politically unpopular with voting demographics Democrats need to win or hold onto. 

Given the statements made by the “squad’s” during a press conference earlier this week and during and interview with CBS News Wednesday morning, there are rough seas ahead.
