Texas Rep. Al Green’s wild pipe dream of forcing his Democratic colleagues to vote in favor of articles of impeachment has been tabled for now. Wednesday afternoon, the House officially voted to table impeaching President Donald J. Trump. This does not mean that the dream for Rep. Green has officially died, but it does mean that it essentially gets moved to Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s desk, who will decide if and when to bring the issue back for consideration. . .
The official vote tally was 332 yeas to 95 nays with one voting present. The biggest name who voted “nay,” meaning they wanted to the actual vote to move forward was Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York.
