The Texas congressman, along with five other House Democrats, introduced articles of impeachment against the president in November. Green brought forth articles of impeachment on the House floor in early December, but it failed in a decidedly. House lawmakers effectively killed Green’s effort, voting 364-58 to sideline the measure.
The congressmen listed a number of charges against the president in their December articles, including: obstruction of justice, a violation of the Constitution’s foreign emoluments clause, a violation of the Constitution’s domestic emoluments clause, undermining the federal judiciary process and undermining the press.
The articles primarily focused on Trump’s handing of the termination of former FBI Director James Comey, and potential conflicts of interest with Trump’s businesses and properties while he’s served as president.
