"Impeachment is an extraordinary measure, but it should be clear to anyone who examines the facts that President Trump's actions justify his impeachment, including his efforts to obstruct justice, his self-enrichment and serial violations of the Emoluments Clause, and his involvement in a cover-up stemming from his campaign's very likely collusion with Russian interests to undermine the 2016 presidential election".

"In doing this, hatred disguised as acceptable political correctness has festered in our body politic and polluted our discourse to our detriment", Green said.

Congressman Green's articles of impeachment did not allege a specific crime, but the Texas Democrat argues that Trump "brought disrepute, contempt, ridicule, and disgrace on the presidency".

Green's impeachment articles cite incidents including Trump's defense of protesters after a rally of white supremacists at this year's riot in Charlottesville, Virginia. That's because Republicans narrowly control the House and Democrats are divided on the issue. "For this reason I will bring articles of impeachment to a vote in the House of Representatives", Green wrote in a letter to colleagues. Green argues that Trump has committed a high misdeed and is unfit to be president and warrants impeachment, trial and removal from office.

Shortly before the vote, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said there are "legitimate questions" raised about Trump's fitness to lead the country. All Republicans voted to turn away Green's resolution, while four Democratic lawmakers voted present.

Oldest son Lonzo is a rookie with the Lakers after playing one successful season at UCLA. "That's why I gave him the shoes". Since UCLA will not indicate when LiAngelo Ball will return to action, his father is being proactive and taking him out.

The House has overwhelmingly voted to kill a resolution from a Democratic lawmaker to impeach President Donald Trump.

We are a long way from having the votes in Congress to impeach, a vote that must happen on a bipartisan basis.

Green also has cited Trump lashing out at NFL players who kneeled during the National Anthem to protest police brutality and his Muslim travel ban.

The effort is certain to lose.

"We ought to let Mr. Mueller complete his full investigation rather than engage in what would essentially be a public relations stunt", said Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Mich).
