Democrat plans to force impeachment vote against Trump this week

GOP strategist Impeachment 'closer' than people think

Minority Leader Nancy PelosiNancy Patricia D'Alesandro PelosiRight scrambles GOP budget strategy Dem rep Moulton calls on Franken to resign Mark Mellman: History's judgment MORE (D-Calif.) and other senior Democrats believe that talk of impeachment at this point is premature, citing the ongoing special counsel probe into Trump campaign contacts with the Russian government.

A longshot bid to impeach President Trump failed on Wednesday.

It remains highly unlikely that the majority of House representatives will vote to impeach Trump, as it would be necessary for the motion to be passed onto the Senate for a two-thirds vote.

Pelosi and Hoyer say Congress faces a vast set of urgent overdue priorities and that Democrats are focused on "protecting American families" in the coming tax debate and vote.

Green has discussed impeaching Trump since the spring and previously filed impeachment articles in October, almost forcing a vote at that time before House Democratic leaders persuaded him to temporarily abandon the effort.

Tiger's return options three under-par rounds
But the 79 times PGA Tour victor struck back with birdies at 11, 14 and 15 before bogeys at 17 and 18. He added three birdies on the back nine but closed poorly, with bogeys on the final two holes.

In a tweet on Tuesday, December 5, Green, a Democrat from Texas, announced he had released articles of impeachment against Trump, on which the House will vote on Wednesday.

"Legitimate questions have been raised about his fitness to lead this nation", Pelosi and Hoyer continued. Green argues that Trump has committed a high misdeed and is unfit to be president and warrants impeachment, trial and removal from office. Although his speech is not criminal, it divides and damages the country, Green wrote in a letter to his colleagues, according to CNN.

The resolution offered by Green states that Trump has sown discord among the people of the US based on national origin and race.

"He has harmed the society of the United States; brought shame and dishonor to the office of president of the United States; sowing discord among the people of the United States by associating the majesty and dignity of the presidency with causes rooted in white supremacy, bigotry, racism, anti-Semitism, white nationalism or neo-Nazism", Green said.

The congressman also specifically cited Trump's comments after a deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August.
