Dem says he will force House vote on impeachment Wednesday

Democrats Join GOP in Killing House Resolution to Impeach Trump

"I love my country", Green wrote in a letter to his colleagues Tuesday. "It causes unparalleled destruction to our society in the long- and short-term that will not easily healed".

Green further stated in the letter to fellow House members that statements by Trump and his administration have associated the presidency with White nationalism, neo-Nazism, and "inciting hatred and hostility". The articles also mention Trump's comments regarding NFL protests during the National Anthem, and the anti-Muslim videos he retweeted on November 29.

Another problem for Democrats is that opposing Green's resolution puts them at risk of angering numerous party's rabidly anti-Trump voters.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has called the effort premature amid ongoing Russian Federation investigations into alleged ties between the Kremlin and Trump campaign advisers. Green would need a simple majority of members to support it and no Republican has suggested that Congress should remove Trump from office.

But the process of impeaching an American president and removing him from office is complex and challenging.

Democratic leaders appeared to have prevented Green from bringing an impeachment resolution in October, when the congressman ultimately stopped short of offering it. If he follows the proper procedures, Republicans will hold a vote on tabling - in effect killing - the proposal during the House's first series of votes on Wednesday, said a GOP leadership aide who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe a decision by party leaders.

The impeachment vote will likely only be procedural.

The resolution has no real chance of advancing in the House. But that would still force Democrats to take a potentially troublesome position on a symbolic vote.

Green last week said that he would bring a vote this week but had not given a specific date.

Green's intentions have raised concerns among other Democrats, however, with some arguing that the move may be premature and ultimately work against them. "May everyone vote their conscience knowing that history will judge us all".
