Instead, Green highlighted Trump's supposed association with "White Nationalism, Neo-Nazism and Hate", as well as "Inciting Hatred and Hostility", as offenses worthy of impeachment. Impeachment articles he introduced in October state that Trump "brought disrepute on the presidency" and "undermined the integrity of his office" but did not make criminal accusations.

A Texas Democrat said Tuesday that he planned to introduce a resolution Wednesday demanding a vote on President Donald Trump's impeachment.

"I love my country", Green wrote in a letter to his colleagues Tuesday.

Trump's rhetoric, while not criminal, still "divides and damages the social fabric of our country in ways that obstruction of justice can not", Green wrote in his letter. "It causes unparalleled destruction to our society in the long- and short-term that will not easily healed".

Billionaire left-wing mega-donor Tom Steyer remained defiant Monday about his $20 million campaign to impeach Donald Trump in the face of Democratic Party opposition, saying "human beings" outside of Washington support it.

A senior House Democratic leadership aide told CNN that "Pelosi and Hoyer will vote to table", referencing House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer, the second ranking Democrat in the chamber.

"What we've seen in response to this petition is a massive response, much greater than we expected", Steyer said, citing getting more than three million signatures to sign a petition supporting Trump's impeachment. Both remained in office after the Senate voted to impeach failed. But he later pledged to force a vote by Christmas. But if they vote against tabling the motion, they could be forced to explain to moderate and independent voters why they acted to impeach Trump before the investigations had concluded.

However, since the GOP now holds 240 seats in the House and the Democrats only 194, it is very unlikely that the Democrats can get the green light from the Congress to trigger the impeachment proceedings. "May everyone vote their conscience knowing that history will judge us all".
