House Likely To Reject Third Attempt On Impeachment

The Week reports:

The House is slated to vote Wednesday afternoon on whether to immediately consider articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, the first barometer of efforts to remove the president by the Democrat-led House.

The move, forced by a Democratic lawmaker from Texas who used a procedural mechanism that required action within two days, is unlikely to succeed. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has long opposed efforts to immediately begin impeachment proceedings against Trump and confirmed she would not support Green’s resolution.

“No I don’t,” Pelosi told reporters Wednesday when asked about Green’s effort. “Does that come as a surprise?” she added with laughter.
