On Wednesday, House Democrats finally had their moment to do what they’ve been vowing to do since Hillary Clinton’s team announced that she wasn’t ready to take the stage to address her historic upset loss: they got to impeach President Trump. But it turns out that they didn’t quite have the numbers they were hoping for. In fact they were a few hundred short.
In a move he described as one of the “greatest moments” of his life, Texas Democrat Rep. Al Green brought dead-on-arrival articles of impeachment against Trump on Wednesday. After reading all eight pages, in which he called Trump “unfit” to be president and accused him of creating “discord,” flaming hatred, and committing “high misdemeanors,” the House voted 364-58 to kill the ill-advised effort.
