Green said he plans to go to the House floor around noon to start action on his impeachment measure. Republicans are expected to offer a motion to table the resolution later Wednesday, effectively killing Green's resolution.

Still, 58 Democrats voted to advance Mr.

The impeachment resolution Green circulated Tuesday does not include any allegations of obstruction of justice or other alleged crimes connected to his 2016 presidential campaign or the pending investigations into connections to Russian Federation. I understand why many of my Democratic colleagues, including many who believe President Trump should ultimately be impeached, voted no on today's resolution.

The resolution offered by Green states that Trump has sown discord among the people of the USA based on national origin and race.

The articles specifically accuse Trump of "associating the majesty and dignity of the presidency with causes rooted in white supremacy, bigotry, racism, anti-Semitism, white nationalism, or Neo-Nazism".

Green's effort is also certain to be opposed by all Republicans.

"Now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment", they wrote in a statement.

Only a few weeks after it was announced six House Democrats were introducing articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, the House of Representatives has made a decision to table the proposal.

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.

Pelosi and Hoyer said in a statement that while legitimate questions exist about Trump's fitness to lead, now is not the time for impeachment.

Several Dems contend that it's premature to bring articles of impeachment before special counsel Robert Mueller completes his investigation into the Kremlin's election meddling.

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

The effort is certain to lose.

Representative Dan Kildee said Democratic lawmakers can not allow themselves to be drawn into a process "that's not thoughtful or complete or might not even be the conclusion we ought to draw".
