House set to vote on second Donald Trump impeachment on Wednesday
Voting is expected to show the balance of power in the lower house of Congress
The US House of Representatives on Wednesday is holding a vote on the immediate consideration of the impeachment of President Donald Trump. This proposal could be rejected, although the vote could show the balance of power in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives trying to begin the process of removing the Republican president from office..
The impeachment vote is being upheld by Congressman Al Green, a Democrat from Texas, against the wishes of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Both Pelosi and other House leaders support Congress’s many legislative investigations into Trump’s campaign ties to Russia, and whether there was an obstruction of justice by the President during the investigation led by Special Attorney Robert Mueller..
Green had previously used House legislation to win two votes in support of the impeachment proposal – in December 2017 and a month later.. The House, then controlled by the Republicans, overwhelmingly rejected his proposal. Now, in a situation where the majority in the lower house of Congress are Democrats, Greene again raised the issue of impeachment.
Pelosi has blocked impeachment initiatives in the House of Representatives, favoring ongoing investigations. She expressed concerns about the possible political repercussions for Democrats seeking impeachment, as even if the House votes to impeach it, it is unlikely that the Republican-controlled Senate would convict Trump with the two-thirds of the votes needed to remove him from office..
