Nets Omit Embarrassing Failure to Impeach Trump By House Dem

In a brazen move on the floor of the House Wednesday, Texas Democratic Representative Al Green introduced Articles of Impeachment against President Trump. Citing accusations of racism and the mocking of Florida Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson, the Congressman was only able to rally 57 other members of his party to join him. The embarrassing failure of the impeachment went completely unreported during the evening newscasts of the three major networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC).

Where the networks failed in their reporting, Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier didn’t. In a news brief during Special Report, he noted: “The House overwhelmingly voted today to kill a resolution from a liberal Democratic lawmaker to impeach President Trump.”

“A majority of Democrats joined Republicans in opposing the move. Democratic Congressman Al Green of Texas says President Trump has associated his presidency with causes rooted in bigotry and racism,” Baier explained. “After Green’s resolution was read aloud, the House voted 364 to 58 to table that measure.”

“Donald John Trump, by causing such harm to the society of the United States is unfit to be president and warrants impeachment, trial, and removal from office,” Green opined as he put his Articles of Impeachment forward, which included some laughable citations of “high misdemeanors”:

Donald J. Trump issued a public statement referring to Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL-24), a female, African-American Member of Congress as “wacky” and called her a liar.

Donald J. Trump issued a public statement referring to Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL-24), a female, African-American Member of Congress as “wacky” a second time.

Donald J. Trump issued a public statement referring to Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL-24), a female, African-American Member of Congress as “wacky” a third time.

Green also cited the President’s temporary travel ban, apparently oblivious to the Supreme Court recently allowing for its enforcement by the Trump administration.

With the recent resignation of Michigan Democrat John Conyers for sexual harassment, Democrats only had 193 members in the House. That meant 70 percent of Green’s own party sided with Republicans against impeaching the man they love to hate. In all, the impeachment attempt basically added up to a good fundraising tool for those who participated, so they can show their donors they’re standing up to Trump.

Impeaching a president isn’t something that’s done lightly, so it really should have been something they dedicated some time too. That’s not to mention how liberal politicians and the liberal media (AKA “The Resistance”) have been dreaming of an impeachment to come down the pike. But since the impeachment fell flat on its face, it’s not surprising they don’t want to talk about it.
