Democrats Hoping For Impeachment Resolution Against Trump Get Some Bad News

(Tea Party 247) – Rep. Al Green and all of his Democratic pals that recently were rooting for his impeachment resolution to take hold against President Trump received some bad news as the House voted to kill it.

If you listen closely, you can hear the voices of millions of liberals across the country bawling their eyes out about the thought of having to face off against Trump in the 2020 election, which they are all but guaranteed to lose.

Poor little lambs.

Fox News has more:

Lawmakers voted 332-95 to table Green’s resolution, which was widely opposed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other top Democrats worried that the measure would force vulnerable swing-district lawmakers into peril ahead of the 2020 elections. The bipartisan vote shelved any chance of bringing forth articles of impeachment against Trump in the near future.

“The president has committed an impeachable offense,” Green said on the House floor earlier on Wednesday. “Yesterday, we condemned him for that. Today is our opportunity to punish him.”

137 Democrats voted in favor of tabling the resolution compared to just 95 who voted against shelving it. Only one lawmaker, Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., voted present.

Trump tweeted afterward, “The United States House of Representatives has just overwhelmingly voted to kill the Resolution on Impeachment, 332-95-1. This is perhaps the most ridiculous and time consuming project I have ever had to work on.”

Green later denied he was playing into the president’s hands. “The president, at some point, will be impeached… people are starting to pay attention,” the congressman said.

Instead of moving ahead with articles of impeachment, most Democrats have appeared to prefer waiting to see if a stronger case for removal could be developed that would win broader public support, and they’re eagerly awaiting next week’s scheduled testimony to two House committees by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“With all due respect in the world for him, we have six committees that are working on following the facts in terms of any abuse of power, obstruction of justice and the rest that the president may have engaged in,” Pelosi said. “That is the serious path that we’re on.”

Recent polling has shown majorities opposed impeachment. Even if the House voted to impeach Trump, which would amount to filing formal charges, the Republican-run Senate would be unlikely to remove him from office.

In other words, it’s time for the Democratic Party and liberals in general to stop pinning their hopes on getting rid of Trump before the election next year. It’s going to be him their candidate, whoever it might be, will face off against and will likely lose to.

If they really want to stand some sort of chance against Trump, whoever the candidate is will need to distance themselves away from the radical leftist platform the party has currently adopted, going back to more centrist positions.

Will they do this? Not likely.
