On Wednesday The House voted to table a resolution from Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, to impeach President Donald Trump over comments he made about four Democratic congresswomen, effectively killing the effort.
President Trump wasted no time to respond and made an announcement about his win on Twitter.
“The United States House of Representatives has just overwhelmingly voted to kill the Resolution on Impeachment, 332-95-1. This is perhaps the most ridiculous and time consuming project I have ever had to work on.”
The tweet continued…
“Impeachment of your President, who has led the Greatest Economic BOOM in the history of our Country, the best job numbers, biggest tax reduction, rebuilt military and much more, is now OVER. This should never be allowed to happen to another President of the United States again!”

According to NBC News:
The vote — 332 to 95, with one lawmaker voting “present” — marked the first time the Democratic-controlled chamber had weighed in on impeachment, an issue that has created a widening schism within the party. Progressive newcomers and several 2020 candidates have pushed for impeachment proceedings, but the House leadership, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has been resistant.
All Republicans joined with 137 Democrats and the lone independent, Justin Amash, to table the resolution.
Nancy Pelosi, said Wednesday morning that she does not support the resolution.
“We have six committees working on following the facts in terms of any abuse of power, obstruction of justice and the rest that the president may have engaged in,” she said at a news conference. “That is the serious path we’re on — not that Mr. Green is not serious, but we’ll deal with that on the floor.”
For now it looks like Trump will just keep on sticking it to the Democrats and Tweeting whatever comes to his mind for the moment.
