A Lone Democrat Just Introduced Articles of Impeachment Against Trump

The statute establishes a mechanism by which the Vice-President could take power if the President dies, resigns, or is removed from office.

And Bill Clinton survived a Senate vote after the House impeached him in 1998 for lying to a federal grand jury about his extramarital affair with a White House intern. Green rattled off a list of what he believes are impeachment-worth offenses: demeaning women with "stealthy sexism", disrespecting Puerto Ricans' needs in the wake of Hurricane Maria, blaming "both sides" for the fatal White Supremacist rally in Charlottesville, singling out Muslim Americans with a travel ban, attacking transgender members of the military with a trans ban, disrespecting football players and their mothers (remember when Trump called protesting athletes "sons of bitches"?), and completely fabricating a story about President Barack Obama wiretapping Trump Tower. But Green's was a "privileged resolution", which requires the House to vote on the measure within two days.

That, he said, has caused 'immediate injury to American society'. "If any president persisted with the lie that 'Hitler was right, ' he would be, and should be, impeached not for a crime, but for betraying his trust as president".

Iran Warns US Over Potential Terror Designation of Its Guards
Donald Trump has once again, on Thursday, accused Iran of failing to act in keeping with the worldwide nuclear deal. There's reason to believe he will seek to dismiss the deal, just as he has tried-unsuccessfully-to end Obamacare .

Still, this is the second time articles of impeachment have been introduced.

Last week, Rep. Green postponed introducing the articles of impeachment following the Las Vegas concert shooting. This time around Green had vowed to force a vote that would become the first formal referendum in Congress on impeaching the president. The odds were good Republican leadership would move to table the articles but Green planned to challenge the ruling and force a procedural vote, according to the Hill.

The move by Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, edged his party toward a confrontation craved by some of its most liberal supporters but opposed by many others - including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi - who consider it ill-advised and premature.

See the First Sign of Kate Middleton's Baby Bump
For the past few weeks, Duchess Kate has been on bed rest due to a severe form of morning sickness called hyperemesis gravidarum . Kate Middleton appeared Tuesday for the first time since it was announced that she was pregnant with her third child.

"Before I left the floor, there was an understanding with the parliamentarian and other persons who were there that it would not be voted on immediately", he said.

"I want my colleagues do what their consciences dictates, as will I, and we'll let history judge us all", Green said.

Green can revive his effort and said in an interview that he plans to bring it back for a vote, but would not say when.

Tim Cahill Eliminates Syria From World Cup Qualification With Extra-Time Header
But a second yellow card to midfielder Mahmoud Almawas in the 95th minute made the challenge even greater for the Syrians. When all team cohesion seems lost - as it did against Syria - individual displays like Cahill's are about all they have.

But within an hour of introducing the impeachment articles, Green missed his shot. Some in the party think it would be an overreach to go for the political jugular, and might alienate voters in the process, putting the Dems even deeper in the hole in the upcoming midterm elections.
