Proposal To Impeach Trump Overwhelmingly Rejected

United States House of Representatives chamber

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that while Trump has made several statements and taken actions "that are beyond the pale for most Americans", it was important to allow congressional committees probing Russian meddling in the United States election and possible Trump campaign collusion to proceed with their work.

"Impeachment is an extraordinary measure, but it should be clear to anyone who examines the facts that President Trump's actions justify his impeachment, including his efforts to obstruct justice, his self-enrichment and serial violations of the Emoluments Clause, and his involvement in a cover-up stemming from his campaign's very likely collusion with Russian interests to undermine the 2016 presidential election".

Democratic leaders have urged Green to drop the idea, CNN said.

House Democrats Are Going to Try to Impeach President Trump Again

The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted Wednesday to stop an effort by lawmaker Al Green to impeach President Donald Trump. Green would need a simple majority of members to support it and no Republican has suggested that Congress should remove Trump from office. That's because Republicans narrowly control the House and Democrats are divided on the issue.

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.

"Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment", they wrote in a statement.

Frisina has played soccer at Fort White High School, according to an online roster published by Next College Student Athlete. Rodriguez, a soccer coach at Caitlyn Frisina's high school, is being held in the Onondaga County Justice Center.

To back the claim, the articles of impeachment cite Trump's equivocating response to the violent clash between white supremacists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia; his sharing of anti-Muslim videos posted online by a fringe British nationalist group; and attacks at NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest what they say police brutality.

Pelosi and Hoyer said in a statement that while legitimate questions exist about Trump's fitness to lead, now is not the time for impeachment.

"The special counsel's investigation is moving forward as well, and those inquiries should be allowed to continue", she added, referring to Robert Mueller.

Why Facebook launched a Messenger app for kids
For years, major tech firms such as Facebook complied with COPPA by not allowing those under 13 to have accounts. The social network also is looking at building controls around how much time a child can spend on the app.

Green's articles of impeachment do not allege Trump has specifically committed a crime. "For this reason, I will bring articles of impeachment to a vote in the House of Representatives".
