US House rejects bid to launch Trump impeachment proceedings

A Republican senator has admitted Donald Trump’s tweets telling four US congresswomen of colour to “go back” were racist – but says she backs him anyway.“I don’t appreciate the tweets,” said Joni Ernst of Iowa. “But I still support the pre

Duffy says the president's remarks could not be racist because they did not cite anyone's race.

The House prepared Wednesday to easily derail a maverick Democrat's drive to impeach President Donald Trump, an effort that party leaders consider a premature exercise that needlessly forces vulnerable swing-district lawmakers to cast a perilous and divisive vote.

The resolution's sponsor, Democratic Representative Al Green, was seeking to capitalise on growing criticism of Trump after the president's recent attacks on minority congresswomen.

"Impeachment of your President., is now OVER". And as demonstrated by Tuesday's vote on the resolution to condemn Trump's remarks, only a tiny fraction of the House GOP caucus is ready to consider impeachment; Tuesday's resolution was supported by only four of the chamber's 197 Republicans and its sole former-Republican-turned-independent, Justin Amash of MI.

Trump has since launched an attack on Democratic congresswomen Ilhan Omar during a rally in North Carolina as he accused her of having "pleaded for compassion for ISIS recruits".

US Congressman Alexander Green has vowed to file articles of impeachment against US President Donald Trump on Tuesday night, The Washington Post reported.

Trump turned the call for impeachment into a positive as he told reporters: "We have just received an overwhelming vote against impeachment".

"The speaker and I respect each other".

The U.S. House of Representatives voted Wednesday to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in criminal contempt for defying congressional subpoenas related to the 2020 U.S. census.

"This will be an opportunity for us to all go on the record: either we will move forward with impeachment or we will vote against it", Green told CNN earlier.
