Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, July 16, 2019

House Democrats methodically working to build support for impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump fear that a rogue move by a Texas Democrat could scramble their best efforts. It's unclear whether Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) will seek Trump's immediate impeachment or simply the launch of an inquiry. But he has promised to force a floor vote on the matter before the House departs for its August recess -- either before or after special counsel Robert Mueller's hotly anticipated testimony on July 24.

Many of the Democrats backing impeachment proceedings are searching for something/anything that could jumpstart their flagging efforts. Green's decision could undermine their plans, forcing lawmakers to take a position they may not have been prepared to take.

Green's vote might also undercut momentum for the impeachment effort after it almost certainly fails on the floor, with a majority of Democrats likely to join all Republicans in opposition.

This is Nancy's biggest nightmare, having a renegade Dem bring an impeachment vote to the floor based not on obstruction but on Trump's racist tweets. If, as expected, it fails, that will give Trump and his allies yet more ammo against impeachment.

AbortEd Monson has never expressed anything resembling a debate, lucid comment, or compelling argument about any subject.

I'm wondering if Google's evil AI bot escaped from it's air-gapped test server.

According to MSNBCNNetc. in their coverage of the resolution condemning Trump for his racist tweets:

"After the vote, Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, introduced articles of impeachment against Trump on the House floor in a bid to force a vote on the issue, which Democratic leaders have opposed.

"What do you do when the leader of the free world is a racist?" Green asked. "What do you do? You file Articles of Impeachment, impeaching the president of the United States of America." The resolution was not taken up Tuesday night."

Nancy and the rest of the Democratic Leadership has to be pissed at Rep. Green right now.

considering Nancy is anti impeachment, she's probably fine with this.
