The House voted on Wednesday to table a motion on whether to immediately consider articles of impeachment against President Trump, effectively killing it. The final tally was 332-95, with every Republican and 137 Democrats voting to table the resolution. After House Democrats passed a resolution Tuesday condemning President Trump's "racist comments" against four Democratic congresswomen, Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) filed articles of impeachment against the president, using a House rule to force a vote in two legislative days. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has opposed the idea of an immediate effort to impeach the president, fearing that it will harm the Democrats' legislative agenda.
