US House quells Democrat’s bid to impeach Trump

Washington, December 7 : The US House of Representatives has overwhelmingly quelled a congressman’s resolution to impeach President Donald Trump as many Democratic Party leaders questioned its timing and termed the move as “premature”.The lawmakers voted 364 to 58 in rejection of Texas Democratic lawmaker Al Green’s resolution to start impeachment against Trump.
The Republican party, which enjoys a majority in the lower chamber of the Congress, was joined by a large number of lawmakers from the Opposition Democratic party to defeat a move to impeach Trump on Wednesday.
Prominent among those included Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny H Hoyer, who also issued a joint statement against Green’s push to impeach Trump.
“Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment,” the two Democratic leaders said, even as they reiterated their opposition to the many policies of the president.
“This President has made statements and taken actions that are beyond the pale for most Americans, embracing those who espouse hatred and division while promoting policies that would harm our economy and undermine our national security. Legitimate questions have been raised about his fitness to lead this nation,” Pelosi and Hoyer said.
