Before House Articles of Impeachment Failed, Pelosi Said ‘Now Is Not the Time’ for Impeachment

Before the House rejected Rep. Al Green’s (D-TX) articles of impeachment on Wednesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) argued that “now is not the time to consider articles of impeachment” towards President Donald Trump.

Pelosi and Hoyer released a joint statement ahead of a floor vote on articles of impeachment sponsored by Rep. Al Green.

Every Republican voted against the measure, while 58 Democrats voted for impeachment, and four Democrats voted present.

Congressman Green’s articles of impeachment did not allege a specific crime, but the Texas Democrat argues that Trump “brought disrepute, contempt, ridicule, and disgrace on the presidency.”

Pelosi and Hoyer argued in their joint statement that Congress should wait for Congressional investigations and the special counsel’s investigation to conclude.
