WASHINGTON (Conspiracy Talk News) – The House of Representatives overwhelmingly rejected a proposal by a Liberal legislator on Wednesday to press charges and remove President Donald Trump, and several Democrats from office.
The Democratic representative Al Green presented the initiative, accusing the president of being associated with racist and supremacist causes. To prove it, he mentioned the moment when Trump blamed both sides for the violence during a gathering of white nationalists in Charlottesville, Virginia, and his recent re-tweet of anti-Islamic content posted on the Internet by a radical British group.
Once the resolution was read aloud, the lower house decided by 364 votes in favor of dismissing the resolution and only 58 to proceed. The vast majority of Democrats joined the Republicans in voting against.
The leader of the Democratic minority in the chamber, Nancy Pelosi and the director of partisan discipline Steny Hoyer issued a statement shortly after acknowledging that “legitimate questions have arisen about the president’s ability to lead this nation” but “it is not now consider a reason or the time for dismissal. “
Other Democratic lawmakers agreed that it is premature to hold that vote while the special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the US elections last year continues.
Democratic Representative Dan Kildee said his party can not divert attention to a process “that has not been well considered and may not lead to the conclusion we want.”
“We have to let Mr. Mueller complete his investigation fully, instead of participating in what would essentially be a public relations measure,” Kildee said. “You have to treat the issue seriously, we can not act on a whim.”
In his speech, Green acknowledged that his proposal was unlikely to prosper, but felt the duty to take the initiative “and I’m not asking anyone to come with me.”
Pelosi has stated that any challenge must wait until there is sufficient evidence of illegal activity by the presidency. For some Democrats, Green’s proposal leaves them in a dilemma, because if they oppose it, they run the risk of infuriating the base that is tightly anti-Trump. Some Democratic lawmakers even tried to convince Green to refrain from presenting the proposal.
