Last Friday, January 19, 2018, following Congressman Al Green’s introduction of articles of impeachment, 66 Members of Congress voted to move forward with impeachment proceedings against President Trump. This is the second vote in two months. Last month, on December 6, 2017, Congressman Green called the first vote on articles of impeachment against the President, and 58 Members of Congress voted to advance the impeachment process. This newest vote saw an additional 12 members of Congress on record voting in favor of advancing impeachment proceedings. (Of the 58 Members who voted to move forward on December 6, two Members were absent from this January 19 vote, and two Members voted not to move forward with these new articles of impeachment.)
Congressman Green spoke on the House floor regarding the impeachment resolution, in which he outlined charges against the President, including those related to Trump’s recent bigoted and racist statements regarding immigrants and countries of origin.
